Ancajas dominated Gonzalez all night landing 130 punches out of 477 he has thrown 84 of them power punches while Gonzalez, who waited to counterpunch, landed only 48 punches, 46 power punches.
Ancajas has now stopped 15 of last 16 opponents and improved his record to 29 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw with 20 knockouts. Gonzalez went down to his second defeat in 23 fights, absorbing his first knockout loss.
All three judges: Lisa Giampa, Joel Elizondo and Fernando Villareal had identical scores of 90 to 80 after 9 rounds in favor of Ancajas.
Ancajas, tabbed as Pacquiao's successor, thus made an impressive performance in his American debut and looks forward to face the other champions of the division.
