Superfly 2 is tonight. It’s going to be a great night of boxing on HBO but I feel like it’s going to be a hard sell for me to try and convince you to tune in to see a man named Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, although he has risen to become one of the best in the game. I understand this newsletter is Boxing LITE, and a card highlighting the super flyweight division is a acquired taste $9 IPA.
So rather than fruitlessly try to sell you on a guy named Wisaksil Wangek (ya, get this, Rungvisai is just his alias, rolls right of the tongue doesn’t it).
So instead of that, read this article to get a little info on the guy.
He shocked the boxing world when he beat Chocolatito last year in New York (Was shocking, I was there bro). And then did it all over again in a much bigger way. The first time by majority decision, the second time with a big knockout. You beat the pound for pound most dominant fighter who had had a perfect record of 46-0, then I guess you’re the guy.
Another interesting tid bit I love about this guy, he’s not the product of protective promotion. He was 1-3-1 in his first 5 professional fights.
Here is the card
At Inglewood, Calif. (HBO):
- Srisaket Sor Rungvisai vs. Juan Francisco Estrada, 12 rounds, for Sor Rungvisai’s WBC junior bantamweight title
- Carlos Cuadras vs. McWilliams Arroyo, 10 rounds, junior bantamweights
- Donnie Nietes vs. Juan Carlos Reveco, 12 rounds, for Nietes’ IBF flyweight title
- Brian Viloria vs. Artem Dalakian, 12 rounds, for vacant WBA flyweight title
