Srisaket Sor Rungvisai Upsets Chocolatito Gonzalez in FOTY
In a big surprise to nearly all in attendance lesser known Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (42-4-1 38KOs) upset the fighter some deemed the pound-for-pound #1 fighter in the world in Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (46-1 38KOs) in a fight of the year contender.
Rungvisai dropped Gonzalez in the first round and was up big after the first two rounds, but with a bad cut over his eye, Gonzalez fought back and even the fight up. The last few rounds came down to Rungvisai walking forward and pressing and Gonzalez landing the cleaner punches with less volume.
The judges seemed to award Rungvisai in this regard.
The judges saw the bout 113-113, which was overruled by two cards of 114-112 in favor of Rungvisai.
The fans heavily booed the decision inside Madison Square Garden.
