Hard hitting super flyweight Thai, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, defends his WBC world title, against Mexican challenger, former flyweight world champion, Juan Francisco Estrada.

Rungvisai is coming off two fantastic victories over past top pound for pound fighter, Roman Gonzalez, a fantastic upset, and a demolition, Estrada is coming off a great win over Carlos Cuadras, a fighter who once defeated Rungvisai.

Estrada is mobile early, he lands some good straight shots, and seems to frustrate the champion.

As the middle rounds approach, the champion starts to bully Estrada, as he gets the better of most exchanges, attacking the body, and overpowering Tehran challenger, proving the stronger fighter.

Early in the second half of the fight, Estrada's tactics are more aggressive, his foot speed is still useful, and he hits Rungvisai with some great shots.

As the rounds get later, Estrada is eager to stand and fight Rungvisai, he lands leather, but Rungvisai, not uncharacteristically, lands with particularly hard punches, and it is the challenger who is forced backwards at times.

In the closing minutes, Estrada's footwork, fitness is still serving him well, but he is not able to inflict as much damage as is being inflicted on him, as Rungvisai punishes him with accurate shots whenever Estrada goes on the offensive, the champion, also being patient, wasting nothing, and throwing punches when Estrada gives him the ground to hit him.

Both fighters think they have won the fight, most people think it is close, so it isn't a surprise neither thinks they've lost. Some people have it scored a draw, but it seems the most common score, the general consensus seems to be that the champion has done enough to win, by a narrow margin.

Two judges declare it the close fight it seems to have been, scoring it a draw, and a close Rungvisai win, but the other judge strongly disagrees, scoring Rungvisai not only the winner, but defeating the challenger by a lopsided margin.

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai wins the fight via majority decision, defends his title.

Prediction,

What a match up!

This should be a very entertaining fight. I think both these guys can box, both can fight, but I think because of how dangerous Rungvisai is, his hard he hits, he well he uses his power, I think he has too much for Estrada, and I see him securing a late stoppage, I think around round 10.

Estrada has a shot, he is young, he moves well, he has a lot of skill, and he has mixed it at a high level a few times in his career.

I think activity is important, and Rungvisai has been much more active as of recent.

I think Rungvisai is an outstanding power puncher, and that is what sets him apart, but with that, he may not need more skill than Estrada, but maybe a similar level of skill, and I think he does, he is a really good, consistently effective offensive fighter. I don't think Rungvisai is a defensively strong fighter, and he is facing a guy who can punch a bit in this fight, having said that, so could Chocolatito, but he never hurt Rungvisai, and that's it, Rungvisai takes shots very well, he is a great athlete, Very strong for the weight, and at this current time, he is the best in the 115 division.

I don't know why this card is not being talked about more, it is going to be a phenomenal night of boxing, these fights never disappoint. The small fighters don't get a lot of credit, but when fans give their fights a chance, they always want to watch them fight again, they can trade leather and tough it out in a war just like fighters at a higher weight, and on top of that, they have the extremely high output that bigger fighters can't sustain.

Gold's picture

I think this will be a great fight! Both Rungvisai and Estrada have proven they are quality action boxers, especially in Rungvisai’s first fight versus Chocolatito and Estrada’s fights with Chocolatito and Cuadras. Given that Chocolatito and Inoue are now out of the picture, the winner will certainly be the consensus best at Super Flyweight. I see ways that both guys can have success and win this, but I favor Estrada slightly, probably about 60/40.

In terms of outside factors, the fight is at the Forum in Los Angeles. This bodes well for Estrada as he will likely have a large Mexican crowd behind him. I believe there was a small Thai fanbase behind Kiram when he faced Matthysse but there is no way they will compete with a Mexican crowd in Los Angeles.

For Rungvisai, he has had an interesting journey to get to where he is now. He’s 31 years old, which is generally considered out of prime for a low weight fighter, and has boxed the majority of his career at 115 lbs. Rungvisai is 5’3 with a 63 ½ inch reach. I don’t believe Rungvisai had any amateur background at all, and was fighting just to feed himself at the beginning of his career. There is some debate to if this was his first fight or not, but Rungvisai lost to Akira Yaegashi, who went on to be a three division champion, in his first recorded pro bout. Rungvisai lost three of his first five bouts but rebounded and eventually won the WBC Super Flyweight Title versus Yota Sato, making one defense before losing to Carlos Cuadras in 2014. Versus Cuadras, Rungvisai had difficulty imposing his aggressive power punching style as Cuadras used a lot of movement which Rungvisai couldn’t negate. Cuadras successfully moved in and out punching in combinations, with Rungvisai only having moderate success drawing Cuadras into brawls. The fight was stopped after Rungvisai cut Cuadras on a head clash and lost a technical decision. After this, he won out until getting his big shot versus Roman Chocolatito Gonzalez, a four weight champion and then a top pound for pound fighter, for Chocolatito’s Super Flyweight Title. He dropped Chocolatito for the first time in his career, cut him and headbutted him but fought a gritty physical fight where he imposed his size and punching power on the aggressive Gonzalez, winning a controversial majority decision. I think this fight, along with other previous fights of Gonzalez’s such as versus Cuadras and Estrada where he fought a tough physical battle put considerable miles on Gonzalez. In their rematch, Rungvisai left no doubt and brutally stopped Gonzalez who I think just has too many miles on him at this point to compete at the very highest level.

For Estrada, he has been in and around the top world level at these lower weights for some time now but is in his prime, 27 at 5’4 with a 66 inch reach. He had some amateur experience in Mexico, but was by no means a decorated amateur fighter. At the Mexican domestic level, he lost once before getting his first title shot versus Chocolatito when Chocolatito held the WBA Light Flyweight Title in 2012. Estrada lost a close decision and fought well versus a prime version of Chocolatito in a fight where Estrada had success moving, punching in combination, and counter punching but got drawn into brawling with Chocolatito and sometimes got overwhelmed by Chocolatito’s pressure. After this, Estrada was immediately given a title shot versus Brian Viloria, the unified WBA and WBO Flyweight Champion and former two-time Light Flyweight Champion. Estrada fought well, won a deserved decision, and defended his titles six times before moving up to Super Flyweight to chase a rematch with Chocolatito. Estrada beat Cuadras in a fight where he lost the majority of the rounds in the first half before his body work paid off, allowing Estrada to drop Cuadras and win a close decision.

For Rungvisai to win, he is going to have to really buckle down and push Estrada, preferably trying to cut off the ring, work the body and wear him down going into the later rounds. Rungvisai is on paper the smaller fighter but he imposes his size a lot more than Estrada does, and Rungvisai has more experience at Super Flyweight. I don’t necessarily think Rungvisai’s power or size will be a determining factor in this fight, Estrada hasn’t been dropped at the world level and I don’t think Rungvisai has the boxing ability to get into a position to use his power or size on a consistent basis. Estrada has good counterpunching ability and movement with enough power to get Rungvisai’s respect, so I believe he will be able to outbox Rungvisai like Cuadras did, it’s just a question of if he can outlast Rungvisai which I am willing to bet he can.

Regardless of who wins, I think the winner is arguably in the bottom half of the top ten pound for pound. A win theoretically sets the winnner up for a unification versus the IBF Champion Jerwin Ancajas, the WBA Champion Kal Yafai, or the winner of the vacant WBO Title, but there are some industry politics at play that I think may prevent that fight. Ancajas signed to Top Rank for some reason and Yafai seems to be a somewhat protected fighter under Eddie Hearn. The winner of this fight may want to rematch Cuadras as another reasonable option. If Rungvisai loses, it may be tough for him to get back into title contention despite his action style given the aforementioned politics, but he may be interested in moving up. If Estrada loses, I think there will be more opportunities for him in the future because of his success and history regardless if he wants to stay at Super Flyweight or drop back down to Flyweight.

Champion97's picture

So your final prediction is Estrada? Interesting, I see that, he has been in against the better opponents, and he is 4 years younger, he has a lot of skill as well, I just think Rungvisai has been too active, he's too dangerous, to great an offensive fighter, and he'll do the business against Estrada.

Gold's picture

It's possible Rungvisai can overwhelm him, the slow start Estrada had versus Cuadras is a little alarming to me, but the style matchup is bad for Rungvisai in my opinion. Someone like Chocolatito was perfect for him, another aggressive guy who will brawl and give openings for Rungvisai to use his power and size. Estrada is going to directly plan to negate those things.

Sor Rungvisai has really come out of nowhere to be one of the best fighters in the world. He out-boxed the classic boxer for much of this fight, and though Estrada made it close, imo the win for Rungvisai was quite clear. Great win for Sor Rungvisai against one of the best in the division in Juan Francisco Estrada. JFE will come again at only 27 he's right there, maybe in a year or two he takes Rungvisai, but he will be a champion again, and for years too come just as soon as he earns another title shot. He's to good to be denied. For SSR what lies ahead? I'd like to see what would be a dream fight for me SSR vs Naoya Inoue, but I believe Inoue is done with Super Fly already moving up to Bantam and taking on imo the number 1 man in the division in Jamie McDonald on May 25th in Japan.

Great fight. Estrada maybe the better all-around boxer, but the unearthly calm and flat-footed power shots of SSR I thought slightly carried the fight for him. This would make a great rematch.
