Sylvester Lopez To Be Ringside at Sor Rungvisai vs. Sato

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

One of the most interested spectators at ringside when WBC super flyweight champion Suriyan Sor Rungvisai of Thailand defends his title against Japan’s Yota Sato in Tokyo on March 27 will be WBC silver  champion Sylvester Lopez who will get a mandatory crack at the winner.

Lopez will be accompanied by his promoter Gabriel “Bebot” Elorde who told the Manila Standard that after the bout they will announce the forthcoming title fight between Lopez and the winner at the Korakuen Hall.

The 22 year old Rungvisai has a record of 20-4-1 with 7 knockouts while Sato has a record of 23-2-1 with 12 knockouts.

The Thai world champion won the title last August when he outpointed Mexico’s lanky Tomas Rojas and then successfully defended the green and gold belt against Japan’s Nobuo Nashiro.

The 27 year old Sato who won the Japanese super flyweight title in September 2010 with a victory over Daigo Nakahiro will be figuring in his first world title bout.

Sato successfully defended his Japanese national title against Yuki Fukumoto over whom he scored a 7th round TKO as well as Kenji Oba who he knocked out in the 4th round and Yoshihito Ishizaki over whom he won a ten round decision.

Lopez won the WBC silver title with a sensational 8th round TKO over heavily favored Oscar Ibarra in Mexico which also served as a title eliminator, thus earning the right to a title shot at the winner between Rungvisai and Sato, last September 24..

Lopez also proved his  punching power with a 4th round TKO over Yuki Fukumoto on March 10 this year, dropping the hapless Japanese once in round three and once more in round four before referee Silvestre Abainza called at halt at 0:19 seconds of the round.
