“Chocolatito” González will seek to win by knockout to Thai Rungvisai
Nicaraguan Román ‘Chocolatito’ González, quadruple world champion of boxing, said today that he will seek to win by knockout the rematch fight against Thai Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, who snatched the 115-pound title from him last March.
González, who will fight a direct rematch against the Thai by order of the World Council of Boxing (WBC) said he was motivated and “very happy” to face Rungvisai again after losing a fight that he felt was a victory.
“I want to bring back that championship and win widely, if possible we will seek the knockout,” said the boxer who lost his undefeated on March 18 in New York.
“I promise the people of Nicaragua that we are going to bring that title,” said the Nicaraguan, who was considered the best boxer pound for pound by The Ring magazine.
González added that he will be in better physical condition for that fight, for which a date or place has not yet been defined.
The loss to Rungvisai for the WBC 115-pound title came in a split decision by the judges that even criticized the body’s president, Mauricio Sulaiman.
A month later, the entity’s board of directors ordered a direct rematch considering that the first fight “was an extraordinary battle, which was extremely close” and “that the public demands to once again witness a great battle between these two fighters.” .
‘Chocolatito’ has a 46-1 record with 38 fights won on the fast track and is the first four-time world champion of boxing of Nicaragua beating the legendary Alexis Argüello (1952-2009), who achieved three titles in three different divisions.
González has been champion of the 115 pounds, 112 pounds, 108 pounds and 105 pounds of the WBC and the World Association of Boxing (AMB).
The Nicaraguan fighter stands out for his boxing almost perfect combining speed, power, endurance and intelligence, like few boxers today, according to experts. EFE
