Former two-time WBC junior bantamweight titleholder Srisaket Sor Rungvisai will return to the ring on Friday, Mar. 12, facing Kwanthi Sithmorseng in a bout that will stream live on DAZN globally, except in Thailand.

Rungvisai (49-5-1, 42 KO) is the WBC mandatory challenger at 115 pounds, and will look to stay busy and stay sharp. The belt, currently held by Juan Francisco Estrada, will be on the line Mar. 13, also on DAZN, when Estrada rematches Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, a bout that will unify the WBC and WBA titles.

The 34-year-old Rungvisai has faced both men. He beat Gonzalez twice in 2017, once with some controversy and then once without any, and also had a pair of fights with Estrada in 2018 and 2019, winning the first and losing the second.

Kwanthai (50-7-1, 27 KO) is a 38-year-old fighter ranked No. 268 in the world by BoxRec, and that W-L record is extremely empty, though he did briefly hold a WBA 105-pound title in 2010-11. Mostly he’s racked up wins over nobodies and lost to his real opponents, though. He’s 2-3 in his last five fights, and has been stopped six times.
