Cristofer Rosales Looks to Come From Out “Chocolatito” Shadow


Cristofer RosalesNicaraguan light flyweight world title contender Cristofer “El Latigo” (The Whip) Rosales is fighting out from the long shadows cast by his famous cousin, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, professional boxing’s new pound-for-pound king.

Rosales (17-2, 13 KOs) headlined a show, promoted by promoter Marcelo Sanchez’ Pinolero Boxing, last Saturday night in Managua. He recaptured the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Fedecentro light flyweight title that he held in 2014 but never defended, defeating Ulises Martin (9-2-1) by way of a ninth-round technical; knockout for his seventh consecutive victory.

“This young man just loves to fight, and he is a joy to work with,” Pinolero Boxing spokesperson Michael Schmidt commented. “He has been extremely active with 19 fights in less than three years as a professional boxer. With his stablemate, Bryon Rojas, fighting (WBA Super world minimumweight champion) Hekkie Bulder next month (Mar. 19), representing the fourth Pinolero Boxing fighter to challenge for a world title in the past year, it is fair to say that Rosales is highly motivated knowing he has a promoter able to put him in position to challenge for a world title shortly.”

The 21-year-old Rosales, also the reigning Nicaraguan light flyweight champion is currently world-rated at No. 7 by the World Boxing Council (WBC), as well as No. 10 by the World Boxing Organization (WBO), and No. 12 by the WBA.

A slick boxer who can also crack, evident by his 13 knockouts in 17 pro victories, Rosales is closing in on his first world title shot against Japanese world champions Yu Kimura (WBC) and Ryoichi Taguchi (WBA), or Filipino Donnie Nietes (WBO).
