Matchroom Boxing will live stream Srisaket Sor Rungvisai’s ring return against Amnat Ruenroeng on Saturday August 1st.
Ahead of our Fight Camp opener, the ten round contest from Thailand will go out across Matchroom’s YouTube channel.
Fans around the world (excluding in Thailand, Caribbean and Latin America) will be able to watch from approx 9.45am (BST) on fight day.
Rungvisai boasts two impressive victories over Roman Gonzalez in recent years, plus two close fights against Juan Francisco Estrada which went one apiece.
Ruenroeng, a former IBF World Champion, looks to make it three wins on the bounce and put his name firmly back into title contention.
Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “As if August 1st couldn’t get any bigger with the launch of Matchroom Fight Camp, the return of former WBC Super-Flyweight World Champion Rungvisai against former IBF 112lbs ruler Ruenroeng will now be shown live on the Matchroom YouTube channel.
“It’s a great little warm-up at 8.45 in the morning for what will be a very exciting day for the world of boxing. Next Saturday is all about the return of boxing. Fight fans will get a chance to watch a pound-for-pound star in Rungvisai before enjoying the opening night of Fight Camp.
“Juan Francisco Estrada will fight ‘Chocolatito’ next, we’re in the process of trying to make that fight, probably for October time in America. The winner of that fight will face Sor Rungvisai providing he gets through on the 1st. It’s a great little run of fights for those three and the division itself. We’re so lucky to represent those three great fighters.”

Mwakinyo, Kayembe Collide For WBF Title August 14
Tanzanian star Hassan Mwakinyo is set to return on Friday August 14, when he takes on undefeated Congolese Tshibangu Kayembe for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Super Welterweight title in Dar Es Salaam.
Riding a six-fight winning-streak, Mwakinyo, 16-2 (11), is best known for a 2018 upset victory over former European Champion Sam Eggington in England, but the twenty-five year-old has accomplished much more than that since turning pro in 2015.
Less than a year into his paid career he Tanzanian national Champion, and in February of 2017 he captured the East & Central Africa title. Six months after that, he beat 14-1 Namibian Anthony Jarmann to lift the WBA Pan African belt.
He build on the Eggington-triumph by winning the UBO International title in October of 2018, before staying busy with decent victories over Argentinian Sergio Eduardo Gonzales and Filipino tough-guy Arnel Tinampay in 2019. Now he is ready to go a step further, as he tries to secure the WBF title.
Tshibangu Kayembe, 9-0-3 (3), is a former UBO All-Africa and International titlist, and the 26-year-old will be travelling to Tanzania with ambitions to take his own career to the next level. He is a solid underdog, but he also doesn’t know how to lose.
Mwakinyo vs. Kayembe for the WBF Intercontinental Super Welterweight title on August 14 at Mlimani City in Dar Es Salaam headlines a show promoted by Peak Time Promotions.
