As BoxingScene.com reported earlier today, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Carlos Cuadras will re-enter their rivalry with the WBC world flyweight belt, which was vacated on the field at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday, February 5th, live worldwide on DAZN.
The pair first met in May 2014 for the same title, with Cuadras claiming the crown through a unified technical decision following an accidental clash in Mexico.
There’s not just a WBC crown for Rungvisai (50-5-1 43 KOs) and Cuadras (39-4-1 27 KOs), with the winner potentially pitted against the winner of the March clash between Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, setting up more fireworks in the 115lb division is always fun.
Rungvisai entered the match after three wins in Thailand following a clash with Estrada, where he gave up the WBC crown he played against Cuadras. Victory in the rematch at Phoenix will see the 35-year-old win the green and gold wristwatch for the third time and it’s been almost nine years since he first held that crown. .
Cuadras ended Rungvisai’s reign on that occasion and the Mexican made six title defenses before Chocolatito took the crown in California in September 2016. It was the second time the 33-year-old has attempted to win it back. the throne and return after his last. battle for the title, where he defeated defending champion Estrada in the third round before the champion prevailed in Mexico in October 2020.
The rematch’s poor assist was led by lightweight flyweight Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez as he finished the world title bout. Rodriguez (14-0 10 KOs) sent Jose Burgos in form for four innings in his final game in Fresno in October, and WBA #2 and WBO #4 will look to raise his claims for world title before an opponent is about to be named. .
There’s more world championship action on the card as Jamie Mitchell makes her first WBA bantamweight title defense against Carly Skelly. Mitchell (7-0-2 4 KOs) won the title in October in England by seeing off Shannon Courtenay by majority decision, with the belt only going to the American after then-champ Courtenay failed to win. can overcome weights. After winning the title at Liverpool, Mitchell will defend the title against a Liverpudlian fighter, as Skelly (4-0-1) fights for her first World Championship as she won the WBC International Super Bantamweight title on home to Dorota Norek in October, a year after a split draw against Amy Timlin for the Commonwealth crown.
Raymond Ford defended his WBA Continental Featherweight title for the second time against Edward Vazquez. Ford (10-0-1 6 KOs) impressed in his first defense in New York in November, stopping Felix Carabello for eight rounds to keep the belt he landed in England in August via a third round KO by Reece Bellotti. The unbeaten Texan Vazquez (11-0 3 KOs) would end Ford’s reign in Phoenix, and the 26-year-old battles for the first title in his 12th professional game.
Matchroom’s latest USA signing Aaron Aponte (4-0 KO) looks set to extend his unbeaten start in payoffs against undefeated Canadian Louis Jourdain (2-0 1 KO) , lightweight talent Khalil Coe (1-0-1 1 KO) also meets Canadian opponent in the form of Stuart Twardzik (1-0-1 1 KO) and has a big stage for two Arizona boxers, heavyweight Adam Stewart (12-1-1 8 KOs) and middleweight Elijah Garcia (9-0 8 KOs).
Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “Srisaket and Carlos promise to be another brilliant Flyweight Superweight title fight. “Carlos played better than Srisaket in their first fight seven years ago – and I’m sure it’s going to be a real fan-friendly fight with a lot of risk at stake.
“The card is stacked with talent. Jesse is the awaited World Champion and it’s fun to watch, Jamie was brilliant beating Shannon in Liverpool and I know Carly will do his best to bring the title back to England and Ray’s stock increased with each impressive win he scored. Aaron is our latest signing and something to watch, Khalil is looking to bounce back from last time’s draw and it’s a great opportunity for locals Adam and Elijah to make an impression under the bright lights . ”
