Monday Morning QB Chocolatito vs Rungvisai – This past Saturday night at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Thailand’s Wisaksil Wangek (aka Srisaket Sor Rungvisai) won the WBC’s world super flyweight title when he defeated Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez via majority decision.
The loss was the first of Gonzalez’ decorated career as he falls to 46-1. Gonzalez was considered the #1 pound for pound fighter in the world since the retirement of Floyd Mayweather Jr and that accolade is likely to go by the wayside as well as his title reign. Gonzalez fought like a true champion and many feel his performance was worthy of the win but Gonzalez found himself in a second tooth-and-nail battle in a row at 115 pounds against a very determined opponent.
And Wangek was just that. What he lacked in polish he made up for with guts aplenty and he went after the champion for the twelve rounds. His rugged style was liberal with some of the Queensbury rules and “Chocolatito” showed the effects of Rungvisai’s style in close quarters. At the end of the day Wangek made history by unseating Gonzalez.
