Earlier today we were informed that the Thai media were beginning to report that a date has been set for the WBC Super Flyweight eliminator between former champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (33-4-1, 30) and Mexican fighter Jose Salgado (34-2-2, 27).
The date we've been told is May 22nd, though we've unfortunately not been given the venue as of yet, though we're expecting to be given those details shortly.
The bout's winner will be the mandatory challenger for the WBC Super Flyweight title and will face the winner of the upcoming contest between Carlos Cuadras (31-0-1, 25) and Luis Concepcion (32-3, 23). Going into that bout Cuadras is the defending champion and a man wanted by both Srisaket and Salgado. After all Cuadras did beat Srisaket for the title last year and fought to a technical draw with Salgado, also last year.
Whilst we've not yet had confirmation of the date we have got in touch with Narkonloung and hope they will return our e-mail shortly.
