Srisaket Sor Rungvisai vs Juan Francisco Estrada Preview
As the fight was continued, Estrada gained confidence. He had more pop in his punches, was quicker to the draw and one step ahead of Sor Rungvisai the entire way.
Sor Rungvisai tried anything and everything to try and confuse Estrada. In the middle part of the fight, Sor Rungvisai fought of the orthodox stance. Doing that proved to be ineffective and it essentially took him out of the fight.,
Finally in the ninth round, Sor Rungvisai went to back to his customary southpaw position and was able to get Estrada in some trouble by sending back his powerful straight left hand on more than one occassion. He’s going to look back at the tape and wonder why he didn’t do that from the outset because when the native of Thailand fought from that stance, he had Estrada back on his heels and a bit confused.
All Sor Rungvisai did was make the scorecards from the judges a little closer than what actually happened. Estrada put on an exceptional performance and become a two-division world champion.
A trilogy fight makes the most sense considering it’s now tied at one.
“If he wants a third fight, we’ll do it,” Estrada told Chris Mannix in his post-fight interview. But first, I’d prefer to unify.”
Here’s how the Sor Rungvisai vs. Estrada main card went down.
