CHOCOLATITO RETURNS, STOPS FUENTES IN 5TH

Roman Gonzalez (47-2-0, 39KOs) of Managua, Nicaragua stopped Moises Fuentes (25-6-1, 14KOs) of Mexico City on the undercard of the Canelo-GGG 2 fight Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Chocolatito dominated Fuentes the whole night with his patented aggression and finished the game Mexican with a wicked right cross to the jaw in the fifth round sending Fuentes sprawled to the canvas. The referee didn't bother to count. Time: 1:44 of the 5th round.
The former pound for pound great Gonzalez returned to the win column after suffering two successive defeats to Thai star Srisaket Sor Rungvisai the last one was a devastating fourth round knockout on Superfly 2 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
Fuentes, 30, the former WBO world minimumweight champion who battled the Philippines' Donnie Nietes twice, drawing once and stopped on the second fight, has now lost four of his five last fights and may have lost his last chance to come back to elite boxing.
