The Srisaket Sor Rungvisai VS Iran Diaz All-Star Preview

September 06, 2018

The biggest bout in Thailand’s history is just over one month away.

On 6 October at ONE: KINGDOM OF HEROES, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai will defend his WBC Super Flyweight World Title against Iran “MagnifiKO” Diaz.

This boxing bout will serve as the main event in Bangkok’s Impact Arena – topping a bill featuring outstanding mixed martial arts, kickboxing, and Muay Thai contests.

As the athletes enter their final few weeks of preparation, check out this preview, featuring some of the biggest names in martial arts.

Among the stars in Srisaket’s corner is ONE mixed martial arts star, Rika “Tiny Doll” Ishige. As a native of Thailand, she speaks about the way the boxing icon has inspired people across his nation after surviving abject poverty.

His team reveals that he used to forage for food in the garbage so he would not go hungry, before rising to become an internationally-renowned boxing great.

Diaz comes into the match-up with no lack of fanfare, thanks to his recent wins over two former world champions.

He is backed by a legend of the sweet science, four-division World Champion Juan Manuel Márquez, who joined Team Diaz as an adviser for the most important bout in his compatriot’s career.

If Diaz takes the legend’s wisdom on board, Marquez is confident the WBC World Title will fly back to Mexico after this highly-anticipated bout.
