Gonzalez loses unbeaten record



WBC junior-bantamweight champion, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez from Nicaragua, whom many considered the best fighter pound-for-pound in the world, lost his unbeaten record when Thailand’s Srisaket Sor Rungvisai beat him on a majority 12-round points decision at the Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday night.

The scores were 114-112 twice and 113-113.

Gonzalez (46-1; 38) was knocked down in round one and stunned on occasions by Rungvisai (aka Wisakil Wangek). He also suffered a bad cut over the right eye.

However, even with blood pouring down his face, Gonzalez continued to press forward brawling and boxing with Rungvisai (42-4-1; 38). He had the challenger in trouble in the last round.

The decision was loudly booed by the crowd.

On the same card, former WBC junior bantamweight champion Carlos Cuadras (36-1-1; 27) scored a unanimous ten-round points decision over David Carmona (20-4-5; 8).

The scores were 97-93 twice and 96-94.

Both fighters suffered cuts but it was Cuadras who appeared in control through most of the fight.

In a lightweight bout Ryan Martin stopped Bryant Cruz in the eighth round. Time 0:45

Middleweight Andy Lee outpointed KeAndrae Leatherwood over eight rounds.
