Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez Sufferes First Pro Loss

Thailand's Srisaket Sor Rungvisai stunned previously unbeaten Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez, knocking down the Nicaraguan in the first round, bloodying his face with an unintentional head butt in the third, then winning a majority decision for the WBC super flyweight championship Saturday night.

There was non-stop action throughout the Madison Square Garden encounter, with both boxers punching relentlessly.

Sor Rungvisai was announced the victor by majority decision by scores 114-112, 114-112, 113-113 and leaves the boxing world stunned as a result leaving the ring with the WBC title moving to 41-4-1.

Early on, Rungvisai dropped Gonzalez with a thudding body shot and used his superior size to walk Gonzalez down and absorbed a horrifying amount of punishment throughout the proceedings. Rungvisai took a vicious pounding in the final round as Gonzalez came forward with a series of textbook punches, nearly all of which landed.

The feel of his own blood trickling woke something in Gonzalez much the way Marvin Hagler once went wild after being cut by Thomas Hearns.

Active Stock Momentum: Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (KTOS)
For the past 5 years, the company's revenue has grown 52.2%, while the company's earnings per share has grown 31.1%. Kratos Defense & Security Solutions (NASDAQ: KTOS ) last announced its earnings results on Monday, February 27th.

Even having a point deducted for another butt was not enough to deny Rungvisai the victory which no-one had seen coming.

By the penultimate round, Gonzalez's face had turned into a crimson mask. 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. I want an immediate rematch.

Gonzalez was in the works of a potential rematch against Carlos Cuadras, who Gonzalez defeated a year ago to win the WBC belt.

Despite fighting in Jacobs hometown, the fans - many waving the flag of Kazakhstan - cheered "GGG" as he got more aggressive with Jacobs, who continued to switch from his natural right-handed stance to left-handed. For eight straight rounds, the taller, faster Martin was relentless in his attack as he strafed a hapless and eventually helpless Cruz with huge shots and constant combinations.

Former WBO world middleweight champion Andy Lee (35-3-1, 24 KOs) of Ireland won an eight-round unanimous decision over KeAndrae Leatherwood (19-4-1, 12 KOs) by scores of 80-72, 79-73 and 78-74.
