Sor Rungvisai vs. Estrada is Eyed For Late 2017, Early 2018

By Steve Kim

On Saturday night Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (44-4-1, 40 KOs) emphatically defeated Roman Gonzalez in their rematch, stopping the Nicaraguan star in four rounds in front of a sell-out crowd at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

With the victory, Sor Rungvisai retained the WBC super flyweight title.

Earlier on this card, Juan Francisco Estrada (36-2, 25 KOs) won a close, hard-fought twelve round decision over Carlos Cuadras in what was a WBC eliminator for the 115-pound title. Meaning that Sor Rungvisai is now slated to face Estrada.


Tom Loeffler, who organized this show that was televised on HBO, said of that potential fight - "I think that's a great match-up. I was sitting next to Peter Nelson(the head of HBO Sports) and he's invested heavily in the super flyweight division and so that's a natural match-up and we'll just have to figure out what's the best show to put it on."

So when might this take place?

"We'll have to see if there's any suspensions," said Loeffler, to a group of reporters after the fights had concluded.

"It looked like Sor Rungvisai came out pretty clean and it looked like Estrada didn't take many punches. So if it makes sense, we can try to do this by the end of the year or early next year."

[QUOTE=Mexican_Puppet;18036310]In the first fight Estrada was drained 4 pounds and fought for first time In his career In 108 pounds. He looked like a skeleton and without power. Estrada in a natural weight for him will destroy Roman even worst…

Estrada v Rungvisai and Inoue v Cuadras on the undercard would be fantastic, especially if they could attract something like Yafai v Warren too (I doubt we see Tito back at 115). Can't decide between Estrada and Rungvisai. Estrada clearly…

[QUOTE=AdonisCreed;18036115]I'm amazed at Sor Rungvisai this guy has fought mostly bums his entire career steps up loses to Carlos Cuadras. Then fights mostly lesser competition getting a ton of KO's then he freaking upsets the number one pond for pound…
