Rungvisai signs with Matchroom Boxing, to be featured on DAZN
The current WBC super flyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Matchroom Boxing USA and all of his fights will be broadcast DAZN, the newly founded streaming sports platform.
Rungvisai is best known for defeating Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez twice, the second time via brutal knockout, as well as a win over Juan Francisco Estrada, which headlined Superfly 2 on HBO, last year.
Rungvisai spent much of last year recovering from heartbreak as his personal life take priority over his boxing career, as he closed out the year with bouts in Asia beating journeyman level talent.
His first bout was revealed by Mike Coppinger in the tweet below
Sources: Srisaket Sor Rungvisai’s debut on DAZN will be a rematch with Juan Francisco Estrada. The fight is slated to take place April 6 in Los Angeles on a card alongside Danny Roman-TJ Doheny. Rungvisai is The Ring’s 115-pound champion; he outpointed Estrada in a war in Feb.
