We have Chocolatito vs. Sor Runvisai results, and it's not what you'd expect.
It's something of a complete shock, as Srisaket Sor Rungvisai ended the legend of Chocolatito with a stiff right hook in Round 4.
Chocolatito looked completely lost in this fight unlike his first — which some considered a robbery — which went to the scorecards.
This one wouldn't get that far, with the fight ending in Round 4 courtesy of a Sor Rungvisai right hand.
What's next for Chocolatito? Who knows?
But if I had to fathom a guess, we saw Chocolatito melted tonight.
The penultimate stop before the true fight of the year next Saturday — Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin — was completely entertaining, shocking and all that in between.
Here's how it shook out.
All times Eastern.
