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.
