What time is Jesse Rodriguez vs Srisaket Sor Rungvisai tonight? Ringwalks, running order, streaming, how to watch
Boxing’s youngest current world champion highlights a busy card Saturday for his first title defense as Jesse Rodriguez puts his WBC super flyweight belt on the line as he takes on former WBC double titlist Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Tech Port Arena in San Antonio, Texas. The event can be seen worldwide, live and exclusively on DAZN tonight (excluding Thailand and Uzbekistan).
Two more world title fights are on the bill with Murodjon Akhmadaliev defending her IBF and WBA (super) super bantamweight titles against Ronny Rios, while undisputed women’s welterweight champion Jessica McCaskill puts all four of her belts on the line when she confronts Alma Ibarra.
Rungvisai was supposed to face Carlos Cuadras for the vacant WBC title in February. But, about a week before the fight, Rungvisai had to withdraw due to illness. Rodriguez, already on the undercard, stepped into the plate. The 22-year-old dropped Cuadras en route to a decisive victory to win the first major world title of his career. Now he returns to his hometown as a world champion.
“Fighting a guy like Rungvisai is going to take me to a whole new level,” Rodriguez said in a statement recently.
“He’s a great fighter, but it’s my turn now. You have to take risks in this sport. That’s what special fighters do. They said it was a risk that I was challenging for a world title fight on short notice, and now they say it’s a risk taking on a fighter like Rungvisai, but that’s what I want. These are the types of fights you need to be remembered by fans long after your career is over.
“I always said my brother and I were going to bring the big fights back to San Antonio, and this is just the beginning. We’re so proud to be from this town, and we get that love back from the people there. , so it will be a special night.
Rungvisai has not competed in the United States since losing his WBC bracelet to Juan Francisco Estrada in April 2019. His last three fights have been in his native Thailand. He returns to the United States with the aim of becoming a three-time WBC champion.
“I’m very excited for this opportunity to fight for the WBC world title,” Rungvisai said.
“I will do my best to win the WBC world title and become the first three-time WBC world champion in Thailand’s history.”
