Srisaket Sor Rungvisai Knocks Out Roman Gonzalez To Retain Title

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai Knocks Out Roman Gonzalez To Retain Title.


Former 4 division world champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (46-2, 38 KOs) got the second consecutive defeat of his career in a rematch with WBC super flyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (43-4-1, 39 KOs) which ended brutally with a 4th round Knock Out.

The two had met earlier this year, when Sor Rungvisai (43-4-1, 39 KOs), gave Chocolatito his first defeat of his professional career and his status as  boxing's pound-for-pound king via majority decision to win the WBC super flyweight belt.

Their first fight ended controversially, but the rematch in the early hours of Sunday was none like the first, as the Champion ended his challenger with one massive knock out in the fourth round after dropping him earlier in the round.

Chocolatito started the fight very sloppy with his punches, while the champion showed his intent from start, getting the better of Gonzalez in the first two rounds.

In the third, the Nicaraguan exploded with energy, bringing back the memories of the first fight and looked to be taking the fight away but Sor Rungvisai traded more dangerous blows than Chocolatito.

Early in the fourth, the former pound for pound was dropped by Sor Rungvisai with a heavy right-hand but Chocolatito was able to beat the count and Sor Rungvisai went in for the kill and few minutes later another Knock Out blow sent Chocolatito to the canvas motionless.

Chocolatito remained on the canvas for several minutes after Taylor ended the count but said after consciousness was achieved "We were both trading punches, but his were harder, and they landed harder," said Gonzalez, who earned $600,000 to Sor Rungvisai's $170,000. "I was very hurt the second time when I was knocked down, but I think I'll be OK.".

Sor Rungvisai said after the fight : "I trained really hard for four months ahead of this fight and it paid off.

"I fought for Thailand and the pride of my country, I dedicate this win to my home country.

"For the first fight, I only trained for two months, I knew this time I would knock him out.

"I will fight whoever next, I'm not scared of anyone out there."
