Juan Francisco Estrada Devastates Giovani Segura, Roman Gonzalez Rematch Please

The flyweight division’s stellar run of late has been marked by its parity, but after this weekend there are now two clear top 112 pounders: Newly-crowned king Roman Gonzalez, who on Friday stopped Akira Yaegashi, and Juan Francisco Estrada, who on Saturday halted Giovani Segura. Estrada-Segura started sloppily enough, which you might have thought could benefit the sloppy Segura...

Roman Gonzalez Takes Flyweight Championship From Akira Yaegashi In Tough, High-Class Bout

Akira Yaegashi showed the spirit of a champion to even get in the ring with Roman Gonzalez. And he fought with championship mettle Friday before his home crowd in Japan. But Gonzalez is the true, lineal flyweight champion now, the king of the best division in boxing, and we should be talking about him as perhaps one of the five best fighters in the world. Larger offensive fighters...

Big Fights, Little Men: Previews And Predictions For Yaegashi Vs. Gonzalez, Estrada Vs. Segura

By every measurement save one, this should be among the most highly anticipated boxing weekends of 2014. No, not because of Showtime’s showcase tripleheader, obviously. The real high-level action is taking place far up the television dial in the United States, or else nowhere to be found at all. That’s because the men who are providing this high-level action fall short in the...

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Roman Gonzalez, Adrien Broner And Giovani Segura

Hope you’ve enjoyed the last couple of more or less boxing-less weeks, because the sport is back with a vengeance this weekend. Indeed, it might be the single best weekend of the year so far, and it’s all down to the little guys, with a pair of flyweight bouts set to shake up that division and potentially crown a new lineal champion. There are also a whole bunch of less-jaw-dropping...

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 ProBoxing-Fans.com #4 pound for pound fighter, Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, parted ways with promotional outfit Prodesa. The reasoning behind the decision was unclear, but it would appear that Gonzalez has freed himself up for fights with fellow world class opposition down the line. It is amazing to consider...

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...
