    Default Eddie Hearn set to sign Srisaket Sor Rungvisai

    Eddie Hearn reportedly set to sign pound-for-pound star Srisaket Sor Rungvisai

    The destructive WBC super-flyweight champion is highly ranked by most observers

    British promoter Eddie Hearn is reportedly on the verge of securing Srisaket Sor Rungvisai for his Matchroom USA stable.

    The Thai fighter emerged from nowhere to stun pound-for-pound king Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez with a points win in March 2017, before knocking him out in a rematch six months later.

    Having held the WBC super-flyweight belt for a year, Srisaket appeared to be headed for a unification bout with IBF king Jerwin Ancajas, however Ancajas’ representative Sean Gibbons has explained otherwise.

    The matchmaker told PhilStar that a deal for Srisaket vs Ancajas fell apart as Hearn swooped in and instead offered the 32-year-old more money to join Matchroom USA and fight on fledgling streaming service DAZN.

    Gibbons claims the Thai will rematch Juan Francisco Estrada on DAZN next and so Ancajas – who still has three fights left with Top Rank on ESPN – is going to defend against mandatory challenger Ryuichi Funai.



    Rungvisai represents an impressive signing for Hearn and DAZN, as he is currently ranked in the top ten of most notable pound-for-pound rankings, including the highly-prestigious talkSPORT.com list.

    Hearn also promotes WBA super-flyweight champion Kal Yafai – who is currently in talks to fight Roman Gonzalez – and PhilStar report there is speculation he may move to secure WBO champion Donnie Nietes as well.

    We call him Wangek on here.

    At first I thought poor Charlie Edwards but if the Estrada rematch is happening that's great. Also Kal Yafai is due a hiding.

    Like to see Estrada get that deserved rematch, fantastic first fight. But part of me wants to see a semi truck vs Volkswagen like unification with Yafai . DAZN needs to make some of these huge fights and not let Canelo syphon all the premier coin.

    Good move for Wangek, I also want the Estrada rematch.

    DAZN is starting to get some go matches made, I heard Danny Roman had been cleared to fight Doheny in a 122 unification, so things are moving in the right direction.
