On Saturday, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (47-4-1, 41 knockouts) successfully defended his RING and WBC super flyweight titles with a wide unanimous decision over Iran Diaz, in Bangkok, Thailand.


After the fight he was greeted center ring by fellow 115-pound world champion Jerwin Ancajas, who holds the IBF belt. The two fighters appear keen to share a ring together in the not too distant future.


Ancajas agent, Sean Gibbons is excited at the prospect of the potential unification.


“Jerwin is looking to fight the best,” said Gibbons. “He wants a signature fight. He watched the champ from ringside Saturday night and loves the fight!

“I love the battle of Champion versus Champion. Boxing is about styles and this fight is perfect for Jerwin. Someone is getting knocked out!”


Ancajas (30-1-2, 20 KOs) drew with unheralded Alejandro Barrios a week earlier, is one of the most active world champions in boxing. He has made six successful defenses since he bested McJoe Arroyo in September 2016.


Since winning the title “Pretty Boy” has travelled far and wide fighting in Macao, Ireland, Australia and three times in the U.S. he would have no problem once again fighting on the road, if a fight with Srisaket could be made.


“I came to Thailand, saturday night, to watch with my own eyes the champion from Thailand fight,” said the 26-year-old southpaw. “I liked what I saw, he is my style, I would be the matador versus the bull! He comes right at you and wants to trade big punches. I do not like fighters that move a lot so Sor Rungvisai is the perfect fight for me.


“I have been waiting a long time for a fight like this, I spoke to my promoters Joven Sports, Manny Pacquiao and Mr. Bob Arum of Top Rank Boxing and told them please get me this fight next.”
