ROMAN GONZALEZ looks set to get his chance at revenge against Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, who handed him his first professional defeat last month to lift the WBC super-flyweight title.

The Thai’s decision victory was disputed by most, especially as ‘Chocolatito’ suffered massive cuts due to head clashes, for which Sor Rungvisai was docked a point.

K2 Promotions and Teiken Promotions – who both handle Gonzalez – appealed to the WBC for an immediate rematch. Yesterday, the WBC confirmed that it approved this request and has ordered  Sor Rungvisai to defend his title against Gonzalez.
