Sor Rungvisai: I'll Hurt Estrada Bad in Rematch, Knock Him Out!

By Tor Chittinand

WBC super flyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai vowed to hurt Juan Francisco Estrada badly and knock him out if they meet again.

The 31-year-old Thai boxer returned to a warm welcome at Suvarnabhumi airport after scoring a majority win over the Mexican challenger at the Los Angeles Forum on Saturday.

Two judges scored it 117-111 and 115-113 in favour of Srisaket while the other saw it a 114-114 draw after 12 rounds.

Estrada, 27, has since complained about the judging and called for a rematch.

"I am ready to fight anyone. I am not afraid of anyone on the planet in the 115-pound division,'' Srisaket said at the airport.

Following the loss, Estrada (36-3-0, 25KOs) posted photos of Srisaket's bruised face and his fresh face on his Instagram account.

"I don't care. I won and everybody saw it. The judges saw it, the world saw it. I think I clearly won,'' said the champion, known in Thailand as Srisaket Nakornloung Promotion.

"If he still has doubts, then he should seek a rematch. I am ready to fight him again. Next time, I will break his eyes and hurt him badly. I will knock him out."

However, Srisaket, whose real name is Wisaksil Wangek, said if he could choose, he would like to have a rematch with Carlos Cuadras, another Mexican boxer who beat the Thai in 2014.

"I want to settle the score with Cuadras,'' said Srisaket (45-4-1, 41KOs).

His manager Surachart Pisitwutthinan said he wanted to organise a warm-up bout for Srisaket in Thailand before a possible fight in the US later this year.

Meanwhile, hundreds of well-wishers, including Srisaket's father Chiamsak and mother Noorat Wangek, greeted the champion at Suvarnabhumi airport.

His girl friend Patchareewan Kianha, who suffered a minor injury in a motorcycle accident, was not present.

The couple will seek an auspicious date for their wedding.

They initially planned to marry last year but it was postponed due to Srisaket's fight with Estrada.

Chiamsak and Noorat prepared grilled rats, spicy ant eggs and sticky rice for their son to eat at the airport.

Srisaket received one million baht from his sponsor Osotspa. He will also get six million baht from his fight fee of $250,000 (about 7.8 million baht).

His home province of Si Sa Ket will hold a welcome party, featuring three elephants, for the champion on March 18.

The event will take place in the northeastern province quite late since Srisaket will be busy visiting sponsors and appearing in a series of TV programmes.

[QUOTE=SceneBoxer;18533648]Well Juan also got some damage from Cuadras and Rung. This is where a fresher boxer can come in and having an advantage. Someone like Ancajas maybe.[/QUOTE] Good point, but I wouldn't consider the Cuadras fight a war where Estrada…

Rung has weight advantage fight night plus the ref doesn’t stop him from rushing his opponent head first. Saw the fight live and couldn’t understand how the Jack allowed all those headbutts.

[QUOTE=revelated;18533396]Yep. In addition to calling it a robbery like this time around. Minny Pacquiao deserves respect for welcoming rematches against top ranked opponents so he can prove the point. At some point people will acknowledge this man as he chomps…
