Roman Gonzalez To Challenge For World Title In 4th Weight Class

Pound for pound rated flyweight king Roman Gonzalez to challenge for belts in fourth weight class in pursuit of the big fights.

But despite his precocious boxing skills and deserved reputation within the sport, he has still struggled to garner large recognition for a variety of reasons.

One of the main ones could be that he is competing at flyweight and traditionally the very light weight classes in boxing have struggled to get (unfairly) the exposure of the largeer weight classes in the past.

Here are some of his best moments so far:
