A junior middleweight bout between Jesus Soto Karass (28-10-4, 18 KOs) of Mexico and Yoshihiro Kamegai (26-3-2, 23 KOs) of Japan has been added to the Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez-Carlos Cuadras card Sept. 10 at the Fabulous Forum in Inglewood (on HBO).
Soto Karass-Kamegai will be a rematch of their fight in April that ended in a draw at Belasco Theater in Los Angeles.
Kamegai engaged Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero in a vicious 12-round fight in June 2014 at StubHub Center, Guerrero winning a unanimous decision while taking a lot of punishment along the way.
Gonzalez (45-0, 38 KOs), of Nicaragua, has won titles in three weight classes – mimimumweight, light flyweight and flyweight. He will be moving up in weight to challenge Mexico’s Cuadras (35-0-1, 27 KOs) for his super flyweight belt.
