Chocolatito Claims Estrada Was Robbed
Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez was in the rare position over the weekend, of having faced both Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Juan Francisco Estrada.
And while Sor Rungvisai walked out still WBC super flyweight champion by a razor thin margin, Gonzalez believes that Estrada should be holding the title.
Per a report from Boxing Scene, Gonzalez feels that Estrada was robbed of a victory in the same way Gonzalez felt he was robbed when he faced Sor Rungvisai in March of last year.
“Estrada won. It was a tough fight, but there is no doubt that Estrada won,” Chocolatito said to TN8 in Nicaragua.
“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.”
“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…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.”
