ROMAN GONZALEZ will defend his WBC world super-flyweight title against Srisaket Sor Rungvisai on the undercard of Gennady Golovkin’s March 18 clash with Danny Jacobs at Madison Square Garden.

Gonzalez was in talks to rematch Carlos Cuadras after the pair warred in 2016, with Gonzalez prevailing on the cards to win a world title in a fourth weight class.

However the pound-for-pound king will instead defend his title against mandatory challenger Sor Rungvisai, who lost the WBC super-flyweight title to Cuadras back in 2014. That remains his sole loss since 2010.
