WBO light flyweight champ Jonathan “Bomba” Gonzalez (29-3-1, 14KO) took on interim champ Rene “Chulo” Santiago (12-4, 9KO) for the third defense of his title. The big story here is a pending unification with the “big-fish” of the division, Kenshiro Teraji looming for Gonzalez.

This fight was an extremely tactical one as both fighters were familiar with each other from many previous sparring sessions. Santiago started off fast and gave the champion all he could handle. His footwork was exceptional and he judged distance well behind combination punching to thwart the pressure from Gonzalez. The champ paid early dividends to the body to cash in on the challenger slowing down in the latter rounds.

Gonzalez is known for his bully-like style of walking opponents down with high volume. However, the footwork from Chulo allowed him to control Bomba. As the orthodox fighter, he kept his foot on the outside of the southpaw with allowed him to utilize angles at will. He also made sure to be first and did not wait for Gonzalez to start the action. However, Santiago eventually slowed down from the bodywork in the second half of the fight. Bomba in return, picked up his pace as his opponent was more stationary. The tide would turn in favor of Gonzalez during the championship rounds.
