Wisaksil Wangek (Thai: วิศักดิ์ศิลป์ วังเอก; born 8 December 1986), better known by his ring name Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (ศรีสะเกษ ศ.รุ่งวิสัย), is a Thai professional boxer. He has held multiple super-flyweight world championships, including the WBC title twice between 2013 and 2019, and The Ring magazine and lineal titles from 2018 to 2019. As of November 2020, he is ranked as the world's best active super-flyweight by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board,[2] third by BoxRec[3] and first by The Ring magazine.[4]

Early life

Sor Rungvisai came from a very poor family in Sisaket Province in Thailand. He moved to Bangkok to escape from poverty when he was 13 years old. When he arrived in Bangkok, he had to walk more than 60 miles to apply for a job as a refuse collector at a department store. Life was so difficult for him that he sometimes ate leftovers he collected from the refuse.[5]

Professional career

He signed with Nakornloung Promotion, Thailand as a professional boxer in 2009. Two years later, Sor Rungvisai won the WBC-ABC super-flyweight title and went on to defend it 4 times between June 2011 and December 2012.[6] In January 2019, he signed a multi-fight deal with Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing. They plan to have his fights scheduled in the US and appear on the streaming service DAZN.[7] His previous promoter was Thainchai Pisitwuttinan of Nakornloung Promotion.[8]

WBC super flyweight champion

In an intense fight, Sor Rungvisai became the new WBC super-flyweight champion by knocking out Yota Sato in May 2013 in his native Sisaket. From the beginning of the fight, Sor Rungvisai harassed Sato, who tried to use his jab to keep Sor Rungvisai at bay, but the latter never relented on his pressure. The end came in round eight. Sor Rungvisai unleashed a flurry of punches on the defending champion until Italian referee Guido Cavalleri halted the fight after 1:23, giving Sor Rungvisai a technical knockout (TKO) victory. "What a fight! It was a war between two honorable fighters. Sato did not want to lose. Each round was toe-to-toe action until Sor Rungvisai overpowered Sato in the eighth" commented promoter Pisitwuttinan Thainchai.[9]

Sor Rungvisai's first defense came against Hirofumi Mukai in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand. Mukai was overpowered from the early stages and his corner threw in the towel in the ninth round of the bout. Mukai was previously knocked down once in round two. "It was a total defeat", said the 27-year-old Mukai, who dropped to a record of 9–3–1. "I can’t remember how I fought at all."[10]

Sor Rungvisai's first reign came to an end against Carlos Cuadras in May 2014. Referee Jay Nady stopped the fight after Cuadras was cut over his left eye due to an accidental clash of heads in round eight. According to WBC rules, Sor Rungvisai was deducted a point on all three scorecards. Cuadras won a unanimous technical decision (TD) (78–73, 77–74, 77–75) to dethrone Sor Rungvisai.[11]

Sor Rungvisai vs. Salgado

Following his defeat against Cuadras, Sor Rungvisai reclaimed the WBC-ABC title and made one successful defense of it before earning a shot at the WBC Silver title.

Sor Rungvisai scored a fourth-round knockout (KO) of prospect José Salgado Fernández in May 2015. A series of left hands left Salgado defenseless, with a final right hook from Sor Rungvisai producing the knockdown and prompting the referee to immediately halt the contest. The fight between Sor Rungvisai and Salgado aired live on Channel 7 in Thailand, and also streamed live on the network's website. With the victory, Sor Rungvisai claimed the WBC Silver title and became the mandatory challenger to the WBC super-flyweight champion, Carlos Cuadras. Sor Rungvisai's handlers sought to host the rematch against Cuadras in Thailand.[12] Negotiations between Cuadras and Sor Rungvisai stalled, with Cuadras going on to lose his title against Román González in September 2016.[13][14] Sor Rungvisai kept busy fighting in Thailand, scoring eight knockouts in 18 months following his win over Salgado.

Sor Rungvisai vs. González

The WBC ordered González to make his first defense against Sor Rungvisai.[15] The fight was scheduled for the undercard of Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs in March 2017. On fight night, Sor Rungvisai put González down with a body shot in the first round. González came back and won several rounds, despite two cuts over his eyes. Sor Runvisai lost a point due to repeated head butting. According to CompuBox, González outlanded Sor Rungvisai 441 (of 1,014) to 284 (of 940) overall. González also had an edge in power punches, 372 to 277.[16] Sor Rungvisai ended up winning a majority decision (MD) (113–113, 114–112, 114–112). After the fight, González stated "I thought I won the fight. I want an immediate rematch. I want to get my title back."[17] González earned a career high purse $500,000 whilst Rungvisai earned $75,000.[18]

Following his upset win over González, Sor Rungvisai was appointed a police officer in Sisaket Province, and enrolled in the Faculty of Political Science, Chalermkarnchana University.[19]

Sor Rungvisai vs. González II

On 4 April 2017 the WBC ordered a direct rematch to take place between González and Sor Rungvisai. Sor Rungvisai was due to fight mandatory challenger Carlos Cuadras. However, due to the direct rematch clause on the contract for the original fight, the WBC ordered Cuadras to fight the next available contender, former unified flyweight champion Juan Francisco Estrada for the WBC interim title. The winners of both fights would then fight each other.[20] On 6 June promoter Tom Loeffler said the rematch would take place on 9 September on HBO at a location in California, US. Japanese super-flyweight Naoya Inoue was in line to make his US TV debut on the same card.[21] Mexican promoter Osvaldo Küchle revealed that Cuadras and Estrada would fight on the undercard for the WBC interim title.[22] On 6 July, Loeffler announced the event would take place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.[23] The fight was also to be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK.[24]

At the seven-day weigh in on 3 September, González weighed 119.8 lbs and Rungvisai weighed in at 119 lbs. As per WBC rules, both boxers were required to weigh no more than 121 lbs.[25] At the official weigh-in one day before the fight, González tipped the scales at 114.8 lbs, while Sor Rungvisai weighed 115 lbs.[26] González would be paid a career high $600,000 purse, while Sor Rungvisai made $170,000.[27]

On fight night, in front of a pro-González sell-out crowd of 7,418, González suffered his second consecutive defeat and failed to regain the WBC title, after being knocked out by Sor Rungvisai in the fourth round of their rematch. The opening round started with both fighters throwing heavy shots. Sor Rungvisai began to work the body straight away. In round four, González was knocked down hard from a left to the head. González beat the referee's count of ten, but on unsteady legs. Rungvisai then finished the badly hurt González with a right to the head that put him down flat on his back. Referee Tom Taylor didn't bother with a count, waiving the fight off at 1:18 of the round. González was taken to the hospital after the fight for precaution. Like the first fight, an accidental clash of heads occurred in round one. When González complained and the crowd booed, the referee warned Rungvisai.[28]

After the fight, Sor Rungvisai stated that he had prepared for four months in order to knock González out, "I trained very hard for four months. I fought for Thailand, and this is what I dedicate this fight to, Thailand. For the first fight I only trained for two months. I knew I was going to knock him out." González was humble in defeat, "We were both trading punches, but his were harder, and they landed harder. I was very hurt the second time when I was knocked down, but I think I'll be OK."[29] Loeffler also spoke to HBO about González' future, "I don't think he's done. When you fight a guy like Srisaket, he took the opportunity of winning the lottery. He beat the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter and beat him in New York, and then he beat him more convincingly the second time. Now he has to be considered one of the best in the world. You saw Roman really packed the house, and Srisaket came into a hostile environment and proved he is a true champion. He has tremendous punching power." CompuBox stats showed that Rungvisai landed 80 of his 291 punches thrown (27%) and González landed 58 of 212 (27%). All 80 of Rungvisai's landed punches were power shots.[30][31][32] After the fight, Sor Rungvisai stated that he was willing to fight anyone at super-flyweight, whether it was his new mandatory challenger Juan Francisco Estrada, who defeated Carlos Cuadras earlier that evening, or WBO champion Naoya Inoue.[33]

Sor Rungvisai vs. Estrada I

Sor Rungvisai faced Juan Francisco Estrada on 24 February 2018. For Sor Rungvisai, the bout served as his second defense in his second reign. He entered the bout on a 17-fight winning streak, featuring 15 stoppages. Estrada, a former unified flyweight champion, fought in his first super-flyweight world title fight.[34]

Sor Rungvisai outpointed the Mexican challenger over twelve rounds via Majority Decision (114-114, 115-113, 117-111) to retain his title.[35]

Sor Rungvisai vs Bae

Rungvisai's next fight was a stay-busy affair against Young Gil Bae. Rungvisai was aggressive from the opening bell, dropping and stopping his opponent already near the end of the opening round.[36]

Sor Rungvisai vs. Diaz

On the 6th of October 2018, Sor Rungvisai defended his title against game Super Flyweight contender Hiram Irak Diaz, Diaz was coming off of a 3-round technical draw against Adolfo Castillo as well as wins against former champions Hernán Márquez and Luis Concepción.

Rungvisai came out in an orthodox stance at the start of the fight which helped Estrada get the upper hand in the early rounds. Estrada was dictating the pace early and won 5 of the first 6 rounds. Rungvisai switched back to southpaw in round 9 and managed to take 4 of the final 6 rounds on average.[38]

In a post-fight interview, Estrada stated “If he wants a third fight, we’ll do it. However I’d prefer to unify first.”[39]
