Roman Gonzalez – Juan Purisima Confirmed For April 6th


    Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez’ ring return has been set for some time but his opponent has finally been announced.

    On April 6th Gonzalez will take on Juan Purisima of the Philippines in what is seen as a light touch fight and keep Gonzalez busy as the buildup continues to mount for a possible exciting bout in August against Akira Yaegashi to whom Gonzalez was recently named the mandatory challenger by the WBC.

    Gonzalez’ manager Silvio Conrado stated that even though he is not in against a tough opponent it is important to stay active.

    “He (Purisima) does not seem to be a tough opponent for Roman but it is important to stay active,” said Conrado.
