Rojas Admits Defeat, Wants Sor Rungvisai Rematch

By Carlos Costa

Last week, little known Suriyan Sor Rungvisai (19-5-1, 7 KOs) made a big impression with a dominating twelve round unanimous decision over Tomas Rojas (36-13-1, 24KOs) to capture the WBC super flyweight title at Khunmuangsri stadium in Srisaket, Thailand. The scores were 116-112, 117-111 and 115-114 for the new champion.

Sor Rungvisai was able to outboxe and outfight the more experienced Rojas and held the tough Mexican off in the later rounds, when he tried to rally for a knockout.

"Yes, he won. It was close, but I know he won. He moved well. I was in good shape. I knew nothing about him. He surprised me. I had no idea he was so good. Well, congratulations to him, but I would love a rematch," Rojas said.
