Jose Bonilla UD12 Saen Sor Ploechit

This is the end of Ploechit's WBA fly reign, Bonilla just slightly better on my card though I do believe it could have gone the other way. Bonilla is a rare sort of flyweight, stocky with short arms, there's no real stretch to him and he's very short of range here. He makes a lovely adjustment though, and although he continues to box Ploechit going away he makes sure to throw a LOT of punches whenever the two are in close, which is often. This ploy allows him to take advantage of Ploechit's general are of disorganisation and inaccuracy. He missed a lot of punches although I thought he actually looks better here than he did against Kim.

Anyway, once they settle down they throw in a right ding-dong, Saen Sor hoping that the volume and his slender superiority in out-boxing will get him there, and it looks like it might as Bonilla starts to fade just a tiny bit down the stretch letting him back into a fight he was steadily being shut out of. Entertaining if not electrifying stuff.

Wouldn't mind seeing a bit more of Bonilla, limited but smart fighter, he throws this short little jab into the mix whenever he is combination punching and I just had a sense that it was purely for the judges benefit as it rocked Ploechit's head back without doing any real damage. He threw it going away occasionally too.

JOSE BONILLA: 4,5,6,7,8,10,12
