ROMAN GONZALEZ will fight Srisaket Sor Rungvisai in a rematch on September 9, according to the WBC.

Nicaraguan great Gonzalez was knocked off the pound-for-pound top spot by Sor Rungivsai back in March when the unfancied Thai fighter dropped and outpointed him in an absolute war.

The WBC, whose super-flyweight world title Sor Rungvisai won from ‘Chocolatito’, ordered a rematch after Gonzalez’ promoters appealed for one and things are progressing well.
