Humberto (Chiquita) Gonzalez had a short and sweet coming-out party at the Forum Monday night. It almost took longer for the Mexican national anthem to be sung than for Gonzalez to make his third successful defense of the World Boxing Council junior flyweight championship. He knocked Luis Monzote down twice before stopping the challenger from Miami at 54 seconds of the third round. Gonzalez could probably work again today, but manager Rafael Mendoza says he will wait until next month.

Humberto (Chiquita) Gonzalez of Mexico City will make his U.S. debut tonight when he defends his World Boxing Council junior-flyweight title against Luis Monzote of Miami at the Forum. The unbeaten Gonzalez, who has knocked out 20 of his 26 opponents, is being called a miniature Pipino Cuevas. However, unlike the former welterweight champion, he also plays some defense.

Both Jesus Poll and George Garcia were used to traveling the high road. Then both found themselves faced with unexpected detours. Scrambling to get back on the comeback trail, the two now find themselves on a collision course. Poll, a super bantamweight fighting out of North Hollywood, was unbeaten until two months ago when he was stopped in the 10th round of a World Boxing Assn. title fight at the Forum by champion Juan Jose Estrada of Tijuana. Garcia, of Westminster, once held both the state bantam and super-bantamweight titles concurrently.
