21 March 2017: *** Jr. Bantamweight Roman Gonzalez loses his first match after 46 consecutive wins against comparatively stellar competition. Thailand’s Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, a physically-strong and hard-hitting southpaw closing in on fifty fights (42-4-1), pressured the naturally-smaller Gonzalez and invited exchanges where he was able to exact a heavy price with both his hands and his head. Srisaket took a close majority decision over Gonzalez, who willingly went toe-to-toe with the larger, more raw-boned and often grinning Srisaket. Gonzalez is asking for a rematch, a redemption.

Members were all over the place at P4P. Gonzalez lost competitively and showed incredible heart in overcoming an early knockdown, debilitating headbutts, and no one could dismiss the fact that he had to compete against the most dangerous opponent in his career without his long-time trainer, Arnulfo Obando, who passed away in November. At the same time, Gonzalez lost and it was no robbery and it seems clear that he has risen one weight class too many. His mesmerizing skills and iron will may not quite be enough to deal with jr. bantamweights. Some members thought he should drop only to #2. Others believed that he should drop all the way to #5, #7, or out altogether. A slight majority, however believed that he should drop only slightly despite the loss. Gonzalez, no longer the P4P King he has been since September 2015, is now at #3. ***
