[Video] Srisaket Sor Rungvisai Destroys Young Gil Bae in Round One, Eyes Oct. 6 Return

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai is not the man you want to face after a 15-month layoff.


Srisaket Sor Rungvisai is not the man you want to face after a 15-month layoff. Young Gil found himself in this unenviable position and could offer little resistance to the WBC super flyweight champion before being dispatched under a barrage of southpaw left hands in round one.

The 38-year old Gil Bae last fought in April 2017. The rust was apparent as he looked unsure of himself under Rungvisai’s constant assaults. His attempts to protect himself behind a high guard were thwarted by Rungvisai’s well-placed body shots.

Rungvisai trapped Gil Bae in a corner and unleashed several overhand lefts. The referee called the bout as Gil Bae slumped to the canvas backside first.

The non-title affair was Rungvisai’s first since signing a co-promotional deal with MMA-focused One Champion. The Asian company will split their promotional duties of Rungvisai with Nakornloung Promotion. His first bout under this agreement will take place on October 6 with an opponent to be determined.

The new deal will cause Rungvisai to miss out on the September’s Superfly 3 card. Rungvisai headlined February’s Superfly 2 event with a Fight of the Year candidate and decision win over Juan Francisco Estrada.
