WBA light flyweight Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (29-0, 24 KOs) retained his title with a seventh round TKO against Omar Salado (22-4-2, 13 KOs). Gonzalez’ pressure paid dividends early with two knockdowns in round one. “Chocolatito” floored Salado again in the seventh and the bout was stopped at the end of that round. Time was :48.
