Srisaket Sor Rungvisai To Fight Iran Diaz In October

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai1

On February 24, 2018 WBC Super Flyweight Champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai fought mandatory contender Juan Francisco Estrada. In what turned out to be a terrific contest, Rungvisai defeated Estrada by majority decision. Ever since that exciting battle folks have been asking, will we see a Rungvisai rematch? Well, not yet so far.

After his win over Estrada, Rungvisai went on an extended break to deal with personal and business matters. On the personal side Rungvisai was dealing with a heavy heart due to the breakup with his fiancée (Rungvisai has subsequently got engaged to a different lady). And on a business note the champ (already signed with Nakornloung Promotions) was negotiating a co-promotional deal with ONE Championship Promotions.

After returning to the ring on July 21st with a 1st round stoppage win over Young Gil Bae in Thailand, 3KIngsBoxing has learned that Srisaket Sor Rungvisai will return to the ring  on October 6, defending his WBC Super Flyweight title against Iran Diaz (14-2-3, 6 KO’s) at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand. ONE Championship, a Singapore based MMA and Kickboxing promotional company and one of the premier mixed martial arts promotions in the world is making a venture into the Asian boxing scene. The signing of Rungvisai is quite a coup given the popularity of Srisaket not only in Thailand, but throughout Asia. The Rungvisai – Diaz bout will be the headline of ONE Championship’s “Kingdom of Hereos” card and will feature not just boxing, but Muay Thai and MMA bouts as well.

Mikey Garcia Defeats Robert Easter To Unify the WBC & IBF Lightweight Titles

Garcia - Easter Jr1.

 

By. BrotherJR

July 29, 2018

 

In the highly anticipated WBC/IBF Lightweight unification showdown at Staples Center in L.A., Mikey Garcia defeated Robert Easter to unify the WBC & IBF Lightweight titles. The scores were 116-111, 117-110, 118-109 all in favor of Garcia.

During the first two rounds the IBF champion Easter (21-1, 14 KO’s) did an effective job using his height and reach, employing the jab and keeping the fight at distance. However, during the end of the second throughout Round 3 you could see the WBC titlist Garcia (39-0, 30 KO’s) stepping up the pace. Mikey began to close the distance and started landing his own jab. With :25 to go in the third round Garcia struck as he put Easter down by way of a right hand-left hook combination. The momentum continued for Mikey in round 4.

Round 5 and 6 went the way of Easter as he did a really good job of re-establishing the distance and pace. Starting in the 7th round however, Easter’s punch rate dropped as he did more moving around the ring than actual punching while Garcia kept up the steady pressure landing shots to both the body and head.

Round 9 was the best round of the fight. Easter stood his ground and fought toe-to-toe with Garcia. Big punches were landed by both men, but towards the end of the round you could see the pace of that round and of the fight in total had taken its toll on Easter fatigued as he walked back to the corner.

The last three rounds Easter was game and tough, but Garcia was in control. Continuing the theme all night, Garcia continued to continue the pressure slowly but surely chopping. After the fight, Garcia called for a champion against current IBF Welterweight Champion Errol Spence, Jr. That’s a daunting task for Garcia and the fight most boxing fans would really like to see for Garcia in the immediate future is a showdown with WBO Lightweight champion Vasyl Lomanchenko.
