Super flyweight king Srisaket Sor Rungvisai has signed with Matchroom Boxing, and word is that he’ll make his first DAZN appearance against a familiar foe this upcoming spring.

Fernando Barbosa of Zona ESPN reports that Sor Rungvisai (47-4, 41 KO) and Juan Francisco Estrada (38-3, 26 KO) have come to terms for a rematch ahead of their scheduled purse bid, while The Ring’s Mike Coppinger claims that the card will take place on April 6th and include a super bantamweight unification bout.

DAZN has a strong roster in the lower weight classes, including fellow super flyweight titlist Kal Yafai and both of the super bantamweight champions in the tweet above. Notably, it has the entirety of the bantamweight lineup of the current Super Series should Sor Rungvisai elect to move to 118 pounds.

Before all that, though, he has Estrada to deal with in a wholly welcome rematch. It’ll be nice to see Sor Rungvisai in action against the elite again.
