Srisaket Sor Rungvi­sai has agreed to de­fend his WBC su­per fly­weight ti­tle in a re­match with Ro­man “Cho­co­latito” Gon­za­lez at StubHub Cen­ter’s famed out­door ring Sept. 9.

Pro­moter Tom Lo­ef­fler con­firmed the matchup and venue for the main event of the HBO show Thurs­day. The re­match will be the main event in a triple­header of fights be­tween the world’s top 115-pounders.

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 hung on for a ma­jor­ity de­ci­sion to claim the ti­tle in a pun­ish­ing 12-round bout.
