Akira Yaegashi, Roman Gonzalez Sign For Super-Awesome Fight

One of the best match-ups in boxing is now booked, so if you’re a snob about the smaller weight classes, time to get over it. Lineal flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi and pound-for-pound talent Roman Gonzalez are going to fight in September (a notion in the works for a while). That’s plenty good, right there, that sentence. We’re talking about the king of perhaps the best division...

With Roman Gonzalez parting from promoter, will we see him in bigger fights?

Last week former minimumweight and light flyweight world beltholder, and #4 pound for pound fighter, Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, parted ways with promotional outfit Prodesa.

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Carl Froch, Delvin Rodriguez And Roman Gonzalez

Gotta love Giovani Segura – not only is he an action hero, but he’s pushing the already stretched frontiers of sponsorship in boxing by emblazoning the name of a registration services company on his Julio Cesar Chavez style headband. Who knows what this week will bring in terms of advertising, but it’ll have some good boxing. Carl Froch and Mikkel Kessler fight on HBO in a...

Weekend Afterthoughts On Adrien Broner As Boxing's Future, Brian Viloria Vs. Roman Gonzalez And More

Every weekend lately, it's Fight of the Year candidates and Round of the Year candidates and Knockout of the Year candidates. That particular KO of the Year candidate was a bit on the sickening side, because it was touch and go at the time whether Juan Garcia would get back up from that big blow from lightweight prospect Angelo Santana. He did, and Santana is now one of the bright...

Brian Viloria Brutalizes Hernan Marquez, Roman Gonzalez Wins In A War

It's true. The Brian Viloria vs. Hernan Marquez card on WealthTV just didn't get the same type of pre-fight hype and attention as other cards that happened this weekend. And perhaps it made sense, as the other guys were heavier, have more popular names and sell more tickets. But some of us knew. Others as well.    In what may wind up being the very best top...

Nishioka vs. Marquez Video Highlights

Toshiaki Nishioka defended his super bantamweight title against Rafael Marquez in Las Vegas this Saturday night. A mostly even fight through the first six or eight rounds, Nishioka turned up the heat and won the fight clearly down the stretch, adding a big name to his resume as he continues his late-career streak at the top of the division.
