Wisaksil Wangek stops Young Gil Bae Round 1

Wisaksil Wangek stops Young Gil Bae Round 1 of their world super flyweight title fight on Saturday, 21 July 2018. The fight was held at the Workpoint Studio, Bang Phun inThailand.

Wangek, (46-4-1 41 KOs) also known as Srisaket Sor Rungvisai pummeled Gil Bae from the beginning of the very first round. He showed no respect for whatever the challenger would bring to the table. Rungvisai threw power punches that have every intention to clear the guy out as early as possible.

Gil Bae, (28-7-2 22 KOs) of South Korea showed enormous respect for what the champion has to offer. He operated with caution. He tried to fight from the outside as Rungvisai walked him down with every punch.

From the start, it is obvious that in the power category, Gil Bae had no match with the champion. On paper, the most notable opponent on Gil Bae's record was Rex Tso. He lost to Tso via fourth-round TKO in 2016.

Rungvisai on the other hand had fought top-rated fights on his last three outings. He defeated former pound-for-pound kingpin Roman Gonzalez twice. On his latest outing prior to the Gil Bae fight, he won via majority decision against Juan Francisco Estrada.

At the 2:50 mark, Wisaksil Wangek stops Young Gil Bae Round 1.

The Gil Bae fight was a step-down fight for Rungvisai. He delivered what was expected and did it early. Rungvisai's next fight is scheduled for an opponent yet to be determined. The fight will be held at the Impact Arena, Pak Kret, Thailand.

Rungvisai's stay-busy fight came out as expected. I'm expecting Rungvisai to fight top-rated opponents in the junior bantamweight division next. Jerwin Ancajas or Khalid Yafai topped my list. A showdown with Ancajas would be interesting. Both guys have power on both hands. It will be bombs away.
