1. Srisaket Sor Rungvisai

Having shocked the world in March 2017 with a majority-decision victory over former pound-for-pound contender and WBC super-flyweight world champion “Chocolatito” Román González, and later knocking him out in a rematch, Sor Rungvisai has become the biggest name in the division. In February the Thai beat Mexican Juan Francisco Estrada. A win for Kal Yafai over Sor Rungvisai would announce the Brit as the main man in the 115lbs division and quickly put himself in pound-for-pound discussion.

2. Jerwin Ancajas
