Rungvisai out of rematch against Estrada
Superfly 3 on HBO will be happening on September 8th at The Forum in Los Angeles according to promoter Tom Loeffler. However, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai will not be on the card.
Rungvisai has been rumored to have been having some mental issues, going through a personal matter in his life. There was a chance that he would not make the trip to America to fight on the card and rematch Juan Francisco Estrada.
According to Loeffler that may not be the case instead Rungvisai has elected to fight in Thailand, he will be back to fight in the states next year. Now, that leaves Estrada without an opponent and rumors are swirling on who will step in and take Rungvisai’s place.
Roman “Chocalito” Gonzalez could be the replacement for Rungvisai. If true he could face Estrada in a rematch. Gonzalez beat Estrada back in 2012 by unanimous decision. The bout took place at flyweight for the WBA title.
It would be a rematch six years in the making, and both fighters are at a completely different place in their respective careers. 3KingsBoxing.com will have an update as more information becomes available.
