Joe Cortez: The judges made a mistake, Chocolatito won the fight

By Hesiquio Balderas

Hall of Famer and former world championship referee Joe Cortez now working as an analyst for ESPN talked to the Spanish-speaking media after the Golovking-Jacobs event. Cortez had a few words of encouragement for Roman Gonzalez after his defeat against Sor Rungvisai and also criticized the judges working the fight.

“Chocolatito won the fight clearly, there’s no doubt about it. I had Roman up in my scorecard by six points. It seems like the judges were watching a different fight than me and the audience, they made a mistake,” commented Cortez.

“I believe the position of the judges doesn’t help, the need to have a better position. They are missing a lot of punches, it doesn’t seem right, I’ve been saying for years the need to put the judges in a higher position, I was watching the fight from a higher angle and saw that Gonzalez connected the better punches.

“To me, Roman shouldn’t feel discouraged because he actually won the fight. A rematch should be next for him and remember even Muhammad Ali lost and it didn’t affect his career. To me, Chocolatito is still the best fighter in the world pound for pound.”

Analysis: How Golovkin beat Jacobs

By Togorashi

Unified WBC/WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin jumped out to an early lead over Daniel Jacobs and Jacobs was never able to make up the deficit.

After four rounds (and a fourth round knockdown), Golovkin was ahead 39-36 on all three cards. After eight rounds, GGG remained ahead 77-74, 77-74 and 78-73. After Golovkin won the ninth round on all three cards, Jacobs needed at least needed a knockdown to draw even. So even though he swept the last three rounds on two cards, and took two of the three on the third card, it was too little, too late for “The Miracle Man.” Golovkin edged it 114-113 on the cards of Max DeLuca and Don Trella, while Steve Weisfeld had GGG ahead 115-112.

By Togorashi

A late surge by super flyweight Srisaket Sor Rungvisai propelled him to an upset majority decision over reigning WBC 115lb champion and pound-for-pound king on many lists Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez.

After four rounds, Srisaket was ahead 38-37 across the board (thanks to a first round knockdown). After eight, Chocolatito had pulled even at 75-75 on two cards and was ahead 76-74 on the third card. Rounds nine through eleven were disastrous for Gonzalez as Srisaket swept all three rounds on every judge’s card. Entering the final stanza, Chocolatito was behind 105-102 on two cards and 104-103 the third. He won the final round on all three cards, but it wasn’t enough. Glenn Feldman and Julie Lederman had Srisaket ahead 114-112, 114-112, while Waleska Roldan had it even 113-113.
