Many considered the tournament known as ‘Superfly’ to be one of the best fight cards delivered in 2017. The main event for that card saw WBC World Super flyweight titleholder Srisaket Sor Rungvisai – AKA Wisaksil Wangek – (44-4-1, 40 KOs) face off against Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (46-2, 38 KOs). Twice in a row Wangek got the victory over Gonzalez, the second time by knockout, and obviously holding on to his belt.

Also on that card were Juan Francisco Estrada (36-2, 25 KOs), who beat Carlos Cuadras (36-2-1, 27 KOs) on that day. In less than two weeks some of those participants change dance partners for “Superfly 2”, which will be held at the Forum in Inglewood, CA. and televised on HBO in the States.

When Estrada defeated Cuadras he became the mandatory challenger for Wangek to fight for that WBC World Super flyweight title, and both men are primed and ready for battle. Wisaksil has not lost a fight since the middle of 2014. Ironically that lose came at the hands of Cuadras. As for Estrada, his last loss was back in 2012, when he was defeated by Gonzalez.

We will also see two veterans of the sport when Donnie Nietes (40-1-4, 22 KOs) will go up against Juan Carlos Reveco (39-3, 19 KOs) for the IBF World flyweight title. Brian Viloria (38-5, 23 KOs) will face off with Artem Dalakian (15-0, 11 KOs). This fight will be for the vacant WBA World flyweight belt.

And finally, don’t worry about Cuadras, as he will not be left out in the cold. He will be fighting for the vacant WBC Silver Super flyweight title when he goes up against McWilliams Arroyo (16-3, 14 KOs).

Arroyo lost his last fight to, once again, “Chocolatito”, and has not had a fight in almost two years. Carlos has been much more active and faced more difficult opponents, so should be able to score a victory here. But there are no guarantees in boxing, and make no mistake, all of these fights should be competitive ones.

With most of these men having an interesting connection, be looking for fireworks to happen on this night. And there is even better news. It is NOT a PPV, even though it will probably be worthy of spending the money. So sit back and enjoy what promises to be really good watching!
