It wasn't a popular verdict at Madison Square Garden, but at the end of 12 brutal rounds, Thailand's Srisaket Sor Rungvisai regained the WBC flyweight title he lost to Carlos Cuadras in 2014, upsetting previously unbeaten Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez via majority decision.

Scores were 114-112 twice and 113-113 for Sor Rungvisai, now 42-4-1 with 38 KOs. Gonzalez, considered by many to be boxing's best, pound for pound, falls to 46-1 with 38 KOs in his first fight since the passing of his trainer Arnulfo Obando last November.

After a brief feeling out process, Sor Rungvisai and Gonzalez began trading punches in the pocket, with Gonzalez getting the better of the exchanges, at least until Sor Rungvisai landed a hard right to the body that sent the champion to the canvas for the first time since 2006, stunning the crowd. Gonzalez appeared unhurt by the blow, and he made it out of the round.

Sor Rungvisai kept pressing the action in round two, pinning his foe to the ropes for a good stretch of time. Gonzalez eagerly exchanged with the challenger, but while he got his shots in, he was getting hit a lot more than usual.

A clash of heads in round three produced a cut over Gonzalez' right eye, and it appeared to wake 'Chocolatito' up, as went on the attack and began tagging Sor Rungvisai with several hard blows.

Offensively and defensively, Gonzalez appeared to find his rhythm in round four, as he tagged Sor Rungvisai with regularity while ducking and dodging most of the incoming fire, and by the end of the fifth stanza, the punishing pace was wearing Sor Rungvisai down.

Gonzalez? body work had Sor Rungvisai in trouble in round six, but two head clashes, the second of which cost Sor Rungvisai a point from referee Steve Willis, kept Gonzalez from continuing to press his advantage.

Staying in the trenches for most of the seventh, Sor Rungvisai got a second wind and simply outworked the champion during the round, but it was back to business as usual for the bloodied champion in the eighth and ninth frames.

Remarkably, the two 115-pounders continued to trade blows at a reckless pace in rounds 10 and 11, with both frames difficult to score, and the same went for the final stanza, as Gonzalez battered Sor Rungvisai early on, only to see the Thailand native roar back before the final bell sounded, leading to an even bigger roar from the crowd as the bout ended.

[QUOTE=animelive;17519246]If you land more than 100 punches compared to your opponent then you deserve to win[/QUOTE] Depends. If a fighter lands 1000 punches in the first three rounds, and gets out punched in the next 9 rounds by 5 punches…

[QUOTE=Miguel666;17527562]you are just making up excuses because gonzales got outer boxed[/QUOTE] No excuses, I watched the fight very carefully. The more eye-catching stuff was done by Gonzales, that's not to say that the fight wasn't close.

[QUOTE=1hourRun;17526713]These guys abandoned Boxing criteria and forgot that defense is a factor in judging : how do you beat a guy that outclasses you and breaks a compux-box record on you? Gonzalez fought like the challenger and made this boy…
