Rungivisai jumped out to an early lead due to his aggressiveness and his powerful lead left hand, which kept Estrada at bay. But in the last five rounds, Estrada made it a fight by throwing caution to the wind and going shot-for-shot with the SN No. 9 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Estrada started the flurry a little too late, though, and saw his 10-fight winning streak snapped. Since then, the 32-year-old Sor Rungvisai (47-4-1, 41 KOs) stopped Young Gil Bae in the first-round in July and then scored a unanimous decision win over Iran Diaz back in October. “I am extremely excited and honored to be back fighting in the U.S. again,” Rungvisai said in a press release. “Estrada is a great fighter and we had an amazing fight last year.” One of the best fights of 2018 will run it back one more time. WBC super flyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai defends his title against Juan Francisco Estrada on Friday, April 26 at The Forum in Inglewood, California, live and exclusively on DAZN. The bout marks Rungvisai’s first in a multi-fight deal with Matchroom Boxing and the global sports streaming service. last_img
