The Srisaket Sor Rungvisai vs Estrada fight took place for the WBC flyweight championship of the world this past Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
The bout ultimately went the full twelve rounds and saw champion Rungvisai hold onto his belt but not until after a hard-fought battle ensued.
He won a majority points decision in the end. A close win over an extremely determined Estrada in truth.
After the fight punch stats revealed a very close bout that saw plenty of action throughout.
Thailand’s Rungvisai took some of the best shots that Estrada could muster up and came back with his own straight lefts throughout.
After the fight both men staked their claim to how they both felt they won the bout.
Perhaps the only logical solution would be to have a rematch, really.

Sor Rungvisai vs. Estrada was a war, with a 12th-round slugfest for the ages. In the end, the Thai champ kept his crown behind a steady stream of body blows.

@steveucnlive Estrada and Rungvisai remind me a little bit of Pacquiao vs Marquez. Both fighters not as good obviously, but just their styles a bit in their first fight when Pac was a hurricane.

Estrada gonna rewatch the tape and be sick. He had what it took to win this, but he waited till the 12th to dig down that deep and go for broke vs Rungvisai’s power. #SuperFly2
