In this video made by CompuBox TV, the punch counting company breaks down Roman Gonzalez’s first fight with Srisaket Sor Rungvisai back in March by the numbers. Going ‘inside the numbers’ they point out that at the end of the fight, by their count, Gonzalez had outlanded Rungvisai 441-284, also highlighting that Gonzalez outlanded Rungvisai in nine of the 12 rounds.
Adding on to that point, CompuBox states that Gonzalez still leads all fighters in both total and power punches thrown per round (averaging 89 total shots and 68 power shots thrown per round). But not only does Gonzalez average the most punches thrown per round, he also leads CompuBox stats in total and power punches landed per round (34 and 29, respectively).
On the flip side, in the first fight 98% of the punches that Rungvisai landed were power shots — a staggering amount.
We can likely expect more of the same this Saturday — both fighters are sort of stuck in their styles at this point. The only real question is: will there be a different outcome this time?
