HBO’s Harold Lederman breaks down his brief thoughts on this weekend’s card featuring some of the best super flyweights out there…
“February 24th we have SuperFly 2, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, 115-pound champion is one of the really, really good fighters in boxing. First time he won a very close decision over ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez at Madison Square Garden, when ‘Chocolatito’ was considered the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
“The second time Srisaket Sor Rungvisai fought ‘Chocolatitio’ Gonzalez he knocked him out in the fourth round. Sensational. Srisaket Sor Rungvisai is absolutely one of the best fighters in the world, but he’s fighting a guy who you could consider one of the best fighters in the world in Juan Francisco Estrada.
“We saw Juan Francisco Estrada recently when he beat Carlos Cuadras in a fight that all three judges scored 114-113 for Estrada. You know, they all had it by one point. It was that close. Carlos Cuadras is taking on McWilliams Arroyo, you know, a kid on the way up from Puerto Rico. I don’t think McWilliams Arroyo is gonna go the distance with Carlos Cuadras. Carlos Cuadras is just too good. Absolutely one of the best fighters in the world as well.
“So here we have three fighters at 115 pounds who are three of the best fighters in the world: Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, definitely; Juan Francisco Estrada, absolutely; and Carlos Cuadras. So it’s gonna be a very, very interesting night of boxing, for sure.”
