Chocolatito added to Golovkin-Wade card
Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (44-0, 38 KOs) will once again be the co-feature in a card headlined by Gennady Golovkin, as it was confirmed today by HBO that Gonzalez will take on McWilliams Arroyo on April 23 at The Fabulous Forum in Inglewood, Calif.
“I want to thank God, Teiken Promotions, especially my father Mr. Honda, HBO, K2 Promotions, and my family, and my team for helping me once again obtain the opportunity to fight representing my country and my fans. God bless!!” said Gonzalez.
Gonzalez and Golovkin have shared the spotlight in their two most recent fights, with fights in New York and Los Angeles.
Gonzalez knocked out Edgar Sosa at The Forum in early 2015 and then stopped former champ Brian Viloria in his last fight.
