Delia Gonzalez

Redirected from Delia 'Chikita' Gonzalez

Delia 'Chikita' Gonzalez is today's best flyweight of the world in women's boxing. Born November 20, 1970 in New Mexico, she sports a record of 13-8-4 with 3 knockout wins, but she would have a much better record if not for a few unpopular decisions gone against her. Some of the decisions she's lost have been protested by her and by the public present at those bouts.

A Mexican-American, Delia started going to the gym when she was little, taken by her father, and soon she earned the nickname Chikita, after her favorite boxer, the former 2 time World flyweight champion Humberto 'Chiquita' Gonzalez[?] of Mexico.

As a professional, Delia began with a 4 round decision win over Lucy Tellez[?] in Texas. A couple of fights later, she beat tough Gloria Ramirez[?] twice, once by knockout in the 3rd, and once by decision in 4. Both fights again took place in Texas. Two more wins followed and a title shot came after that, and she beat Klee Fenie[?] in Las Vegas to become the WIBF[?]'s world Flyweight champion. She defended her title against Anissa Zamarron[?] winning on points, then met Phoenix's Ivonne Trevino[?]. Most of the crown agreed Delia should have won that fight but the judges gave it a technical draw (word used for tie in boxing). A few bouts later, she met Jolene Blackshear[?] and again came on the wrong end of an unpopular decision, this time losing the world title.

Delia isn't one to give up, however, and she kept pushing hard. Eventually, she got another title shot and went to her opponent's backyard to try to become a champion again. This time, her career took her to Europe and in Cologne, Germany she boxed another of women's boxing's most accomplished world champions, the talented Regina Hamlich[?], but again, she came out on the wrong end of another unpopular decision, and had to go home satisfied only with the fact she knew who the public saw as the real winner in that fight. She has kept on going on and has won 4 fights since, more notably the two wins over Yolanda Gonzalez[?] (no relation).

She is managing a hot new talent in Rebecca Rodriguez and eagerly awaiting for a new chance to become a world champion again, while training very hard in anticipation of that chance.

Delia most recently lost to Mary Ortega[?] in Kansas City by a decision for the WIBA[?] intercontinental Jr. Bantamweight title.
