Rungvi­sai, Gon­za­lez re­match

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Srisaket Sor Rungvi­sai has agreed to de­fend his WBC su­per fly­weight ti­tle in a re­match with Ro­man “Cho­co­latito” Gon­za­lez in Car­son City, Calif., at StubHub Cen­ter’s famed out­door ring Sept. 9. Pro­moter Tom Lo­ef­fler con­firmed the matchup and venue Thurs­day. Rungvi­sai (43-4-1, 39 KOs) won the 115-pound ti­tle in March with a stun­ning vic­tory over the pre­vi­ously un­beaten Gon­za­lez, who was dropped by the Thai chal­lenger in the first round. Rungvi­sai got a ma­jor­ity de­ci­sion to claim the ti­tle, beat­ing his Nicaraguan op­po­nent 114-112 on two judges’ cards at Madi­son Square Gar­den. Gon­za­lez (46-1-0, 38 KOs) was widely con­sid­ered the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter be­fore the loss.
