Tomorrow fight fans are in for a treat as WBC Super Flyweight champion Roman Gonzalez (46-0, 38) defends his title against former champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (41-4-1, 38) [ศรีสะเกษ นครหลวงโปรโมชั่น] on a stacked card in the US.
Today both Gonzalez and Srisaket made weight for the bout, with room to spare in fact, in what was a very early weigh in.
The Thai, fighting on US soil for the first time, came in at 114lbs for the bout. A full 1lb under the divisional limit. Although well under the limit he looked strong at the weight in and it's likely he will pile on the pounds today, as he rehydrates his body. Interestingly for Srisaket it was lighter than he has been in other other major bouts, weighing in at 115lbs for bouts against Yota Sato, Hirofumi Mukai and Jose Salgado, and 114.75lbs for his bout with Carlos Cuadras.
Gonzalez came in a bit heavier, at 114.6lbs for the contest and although he didn't struggle to make weight, looking just at the raw numbers, there have been numerous rumours about a weight struggle coming in to this bout and he certainly didn't look as good as he has in the past. The weight was about the same as he was last September, when he beat Carlos Cuadras for the title, but there is still real worries about whether he is a genuine Super Flyweight.
Does Srisaket Sor Rungivsai have a chance against Roman Gonzalez?
