Sor Rungvisai-Estrada II, SuperFly 3 Eyed For September 8, HBO

By Steve Kim

After two highly acclaimed editions of 'SuperFly', which features the sports little big men, a third chapter of this series is being penciled in for the late summer.

Tom Loeffler, who staged and organized the first two 'SuperFly' fight cards told BoxingScene.com - "The shows coming together, we're looking at September 8th as the date from HBO. Just confirming all the  match-ups on the show. It should be a triple-header, again. This has been one of the most successful series on TV and it will be one of the most anticipated cards coming up for the year."

SuperFly 1, which took place last September, saw Srisaket Sor Ringivisai score a dramatic and vicious fourth round knockout of Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez. The co-feature saw Juan Francisco Estrada edge out countryman Carlos Cuadras in a final eliminator. The outcome of both contests led to the SuperFly 2 main event.

The first two were held at the StubHub Center and then the Forum in the Los Angeles-area, and as they say: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

"It's had a great response here in the Southern California area so we'll keep it here in Los Angeles," said Loeffler, who is working to put together the rematch between WBC 115-pound titlist, Sor Rungvisai and Juan Francisco Estrada, who battled over twelve rounds on February 24th at the Forum, with Sor Rungvisai retaining his title via majority decision.

"That's a fight everyone wants to see, it was one of the top fights of the year, one of the leading contenders for 'Fight of the Year' and it's non-stop action everyone wants to see both these guys back in the ring," stated Loeffler.

Originally the rematch was eyed for August, but manager of Sor Rungvisai recently revealed that his boxer would not be ready by August due to personal issues connected with a recent breakup with his longterm girlfriend.

Have I mentioned I am through picking against Sor Ringivisai? Could care less who he is fighting. Put him in with Wilder, I will still pick him. Guy just digs deep and wins.
