  1. Good fight, man, that kid Tanaka can fight very, very well indeed.

    Gonzalez can fight but was a step below in all departments except hand speed but against the pressure, accuracy and mobile defense of Tanaka he was quickly walked down and overwhelmed.

    Excellent display of skills from Tananka.

    1. In my opinion Gonzalez is a better pure boxer than Tanaka but he’s smaller and less powerful and this is a pain business. Gonzalez was unable to hurt the bigger and stronger Tanaka. The puerto rican could have won, he wasn’t without his chance, but only by making an almost perfect fight. Size and strength matters a lot in this game, not always are decisive but you have to be someone very special to overcome this general rule

      1. I disagree mate, size and strength didn’t win this fight…pressure induced fatigue and discouragement did and Tanaka made all of that in the skilled Puerto Rican.

        Gonzalez missed too many punches against the extremely mobile defense of Tanaka (something these Japanese stars seem to excel at) and slowly started showing signs of desperation in lunging with his punches as early as round 2. When Gonzalez slowed down after his nervous energy dissipated in the 3 round he started to feel the immense pressure from Tanaka’s feet and body placement, bringing on more fatigue in the smaller fighter leaving him ripe for even more “discouragement” i.e. body shots.

        It’s clear Gonzalez can fight, just not at the level Kosei can.

        1. Whatever you want my friend. I guess that your knowledge and your almost two thousand comments in this forum solidly back your opinions, and of course, every boxing savant knows that, in general, the first thing that comes to mind when speaking about Japanese boxers is their defensive skills. Almost all of them are Asian Rigondeauxs and of course Tanaka is no exception ;-P. Have a nice day
