Golovkin vs Brook, Chocolatito Gonzalez vs Cuadras Recap

Roman Gonzalez - By Jason Gonzalez, Real Combat Media.com: Gennady Golovkin (36-0) took on Kell Brook (36-1) this Saturday at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, London. Golovkin won the fight by TKO in the fifth round after Brook’s corner decided that Brook had taken enough punishment. Leading up to the fight Golovkin was under major scrutiny for deciding to fight a guy who is two weight classes under him. Even though the fight did end early as many predicted boxing fans and critics learned at least one thing that night; Golovkin can be hurt. It was obvious from round one that Golovkin’s power was to much for Brook, but there was several times where Golovkin did look vulnerable. This is something that had not been seen before. Before this fight it looked like Golovkin was this invisible monster at Middleweight who would destroy Saul Canelo Álvarez. Now it seems as if Golovkin has a chink in his armor.

Roman Gonzalez defeats Carlos Cuadras

Roman Gonzalez - WBC super flyweight champion Carlos “Principe” Cuadras (35-1-1, 27 KOs) didn’t have the engine to defeat unbeaten challenger Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, (46-0, 38 KOs) in getting beaten by him by a 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Cuadras, 28, had the youth, power, weight and height to beat Gonzalez, but he didn’t have the heart or the stamina.

WBC super flyweight champion Carlos “Principe” Cuadras (35-1-1, 27 KOs) didn’t have the engine to defeat unbeaten challenger Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, (46-0, 38 KOs) in getting beaten by him by a 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Cuadras, 28, had the youth, power, weight and height to beat Gonzalez, but he didn’t have the heart or the stamina.

In the end, the 28-year-old Cuadras was beaten by the smaller Gonzalez because of his inability to stand his ground and fight in an old fashioned way. When the fight called for Cuadras to stand and trade in the championship rounds, he spent it on his bicycle trying to keep away from the 29-year-old Gonzalez. When Cuadras was trapped by Gonzalez on numerous occasions in each round, he would resort to holding to stop Gonzalez from landing his shots. The judges didn’t like Cuadras’ fighting style and they gave Gonzalez the fight by the scores of 117-111, 116-112, and 115-113.
