Delia 'Chikita' Gonzalez is a flyweight female boxer. Born November 20, 1970 in New Mexico, she sports a record of 13-9-4 with 3 knockout wins, although several of her losses have been controversial.
Gonzalez is Mexican-American, and trained at the gym under her father's guidance. 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 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 Yvonne Trevino which the judges called a technical draw (word used for tie in boxing). She later met Jolene Blackshear and lost the world title.
She travelled to Cologne, Germany for a bout against Regina Halmich, in May 2000 which she lost. She has won four fights since, more notably the two wins over Yolanda Gonzalez.
Recently, Gonzales has been fighting in the bamtamweight ranks, and in June 2003 lost a fight against Ada Velez for the WIBA bantamweight title on a seventh-round disqualification. She is also currently managing boxer Rebecca Rodriguez.
