Chocolatito Praises Estrada: Sor Rungvisai Lost, Unfair Decision!

By Elisinio Castillo

Former four division world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez was an interested observer on Saturday night, as he watched two of his past opponents collide in the ring.

At The Forum in Los Angeles, California, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai retained his WBC super flyweight world title with a twelve round majority decision win over Juan Francisco "El Gallo" Estrada.

Chocolatito won a hard-fought decision over Estrada several years ago, and suffered two defeats at the hands of Sor Rungvisai in 2017.

However, Chocolatito did not agree with the scorecards.

He saw Estrada as the clear winner and felt the Mexican fighter boxed a beautiful fight and had the right strategy to win.

He said Estrada was robbed in the manner that he was, in the March 2017 clash with Sor Rungvisai.

"Estrada won. It was a tough fight, but there is no doubt that Estrada won," Chocolatito said to TN8 in Nicaragua.

"Estrada scored very well, he moved very well, he avoided punches very well, he made his fight very well. He knew that if he stayed with Rungvisai it would be a knockout. Rungvisai is a very strong guy who is very durable, but the fight that Estrada made was excellent, his leg movements, how he threw punches. He did not move all the time, but it was an excellent fight. Congratulations to Mexico, to Estrada and to his entire team for an excellent fight.

"Rungvisai, in this fight, did not throw his punches very well. I did not see the power, he missed a lot of shots and when he misses a lot of shots he gets tired. It was an excellent fight that Estrada did.

"[The decision] does not seem fair to me. This is the same thing that happened to me when I fought. It is a real sadness that this is happening in the world of boxing. Estrada did a good job. We are not blind, (Estrada) won clearly by two points or three points. I do not understand, but that's the way of boxing. For me, sincerely, he won the fight."

[QUOTE=Boxing Logic;18517164]It could have gone either way. But like Canelo vs GGG, when you lose 5-6 rounds in a row in the middle of the fight, it's hard to deserve a win just because you arguably edged 1-3 of the…

This is apparently where Chocolatito lost his sense and mind... [IMG]https://i.ytimg.com/vi/rizGMTaDmdA/maxresdefault.jpg[/IMG]

Rungvisai won fair and square. But can't blame Chocolatito, he's just mad at his new daddy for knocking him out.
