Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (49-5-1, 42 KOs), the former two-time WBC World Champion and Lineal Super-Flyweight World Champion from Thailand, is set to get back into the ring on March 13 (in Thailand) against former World Champion and current Thai Super-Flyweight champion – Kwanthai Sithmorseng [aka Ekkawit Songnui] (50-7-1, 27 KOs). The fight will be the main event of the WP Boxing series, the leading boxing program in Southeast Asia. The show will be live on DAZN globally (excluding Thailand) on March 12 in the US, 2021, 9.30 pm ET/ 6.30 pm PT.
Rungvisai is currently ranked first in the WBC’s Super-Flyweight world rating and has already been named a mandatory challenger for the WBC World Title. In December last year, the WBC officially ordered the winner of the unification bout between Juan Francisco Estrada and “Chocolatito” Roman Gonzalez to defend his WBC World Title against Rungivisai next within August or September this year. In the meantime, Rungvisai will have to win this upcoming fight against Kwanthai Sithmorseng to maintain his opportunity to challenge the World Titles from the winner of Estrada vs Chocolatito.
“I cannot wait to fight against the winner of Chocolatito and Estrada later this year to show the world that I am the top fighter in Super Flyweight. I would like to thank WBC and Eddie Hearn for committing to make this happen next.
“I will show the world in this fight against Kwanthai Sithmorseng that I am more than ready to face either Chocolatito or Estrada for the third time. I know that Kwanthai is very experienced. He is a former World Champion and also the current Thailand’s champion in Super Flyweight. He cannot be taken lightly, but I will be impressive and I will win by KO.
“It is exciting to be fighting on the same day as Chocolatito vs Estrada as it will be a great set up for our next fight. Thank you Matchroom, DAZN, and WP Boxing for this great opportunity.” said Rungvisai.
