Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez looks to win a fourth world title as he moves up to face Carlos Cuadras on HBO.

Chris Farina/K2 Promotions

Current pound-for-pound top dog Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez will look to add another world title to his collection, as the former strawweight and junior flyweight and current flyweight champ attempts to take the WBC super flyweight title from Carlos Cuadras.

Live coverage for the doubleheader will begin at 10 pm ET on HBO, and will conclude with a replay of this afternoon’s Golovkin-Brook fight.

Gonzalez (45-0, 38 KO) has been dominant throughout his career, but there has to be at least a little question about him moving up another weight. World titles in four weight classes is still a pretty exclusive club, one which Gonzalez would fit into nicely should he come away victorious.

Cuadras (35-0-1, 27 KO) is no pushover, though. He’s one of the best super flyweights in the world, he’s undefeated, he’s a little bigger than Gonzalez, and put simply, he can fight.

Speaking of fighting, the co-feature will see junior welterweight veterans Yoshihiro Kamegai (26-3-2, 23 KO) and Jesus Soto Karass (28-10-4, 18 KO) look to settle the score after their grueling 10-round draw in April, a savage fight that saw both men absorb inhuman amounts of punishment.

ROUND BY ROUND

CARLOS CUADRAS vs ROMAN GONZALEZ

Round 1: Cuadras fighting well, but Gonzalez landing the better shots for me. And down the stretch in the round it seems like he's starting to impose himself with his pressure. Gonzalez 10-9

Round 2: Cuadras landing but Gonzalez is just ignoring him when he does. Gonzalez really pressuring aggressively. Cuadras just doesn't seem to bother him much at all. Gonzalez 10-9, 20-18

Round 3: Gonzalez just has the best offensive arsenal out there, and he's so smart and skilled on that side. His footwork is incredible. All of this is showing up tonight. Gonzalez 10-9, 30-27

Round 4: Cuadras is competitive in this fight, but he's just not winning rounds. Gonzalez outlanding him, forcing the issue, every time Cuadras lands he comes right back. Just hard to give him rounds. Gonzalez 10-9, 40-36

Round 5: Cuadras is so good, and Gonzalez is better. That's kinda what we're seeing. But this is his best round so far, and he's hanging around in this fight. Cuadras 10-9, Gonzalez 49-46

Round 6: Browser crashed during typing but this was another Cuadras round for me. Cuadras 10-9, Gonzalez 58-56

Round 7: Gonzalez has taken a good amount of shots in this fight, I'll say that much. Cuadras is a tough, talented fighter. But Chocolatito comes back this round and re-takes the momentum. This is a good fight, but not a next level fight or anything. Just well matched and quality. Nothing wrong with that. Gonzalez 10-9, 68-65

Round 8: Cable box out

Round 9: Cable box out

Round 10: Cable box out. Great stuff. Harold has it 98-92 Gonzalez after this round.

Round 11: HEY! I'm back with a minute left in the round. Cuadras lands some good body shots late in the round that hurt Gonzalez! WHAT I'VE SEEN HAS BEEN A GOOD FIGHT!

Round 12: Lederman had it 8-4, 116-112 for Gonzalez.

JESUS SOTO KARASS vs YOSHIHIRO KAMEGAI

Round 1: First round is brutal, as expected, and Kamegai is just slaughtering the body, hurting JSK, but Soto Karass won't really budge. Kamegai doing real damage. Kamegai 10-9

Round 2: Kamegai still targeting the body, now JSK doing some of the same and starting to get going a bit more. Hard shots upstairs from both. I liked Kamegai again this round, by a bit, but JSK did better than in the first. Kamegai 10-9, 20-18

Round 3: My cable box rebooted for no particularly good reason so I missed this round and will be scoring it based on the majority I see on Twitter from people I trust, and that is Kamegai. Kamegai 10-9, 30-27

Round 4: Cable box part 2. Kamegai 10-9, 40-36

Round 5: Cable box part 3. Kamegai 10-9, 50-45

Round 6: Alright, here we are. And Soto Karass looks lousy in there. To the point someone might consider stopping this. Kamegai just lacing him. This is a little ugly, honestly. Kamegai 10-9, 60-54

Round 7: Soto Karass hurt badly to the body and has to hold on. This should really be stopped. Soto Karass is a genuine warrior, a word I don’t throw around willy nilly, but still. I'm going to give JSK this round for the late rally, because it was legit. Soto Karass 10-9, Kamegai 69-64

Round 8: Kamegai hurts JSK again with a body shot and a right upstairs, holding, but Soto Karass can't hang on. He's down and done -- or not. He's up at nine. My goodness he's outrageous. How he survived this round, I do not know. Kamegai 10-8, 79-72 -- CORNER STOPS FIGHT -- Kamegai RTD-8
