WBC super flyweight champion Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada is putting in work in Jiquipilco, State of Mexico.
Estrada (40-3, 27 KO’s) will defend his title for the second time, in a rematch against Carlos “Príncipe” Cuadras (39-3-1, 27 KO’s) on Friday, October 23 at the studios of TV Azteca CdMx, in a spectacular function in which Román “Chocolatito” González (49-2, 41 KO’s) will risk his WBA Super Flyweight World Championship against the Mexican Israel “Jiga” González (25-3, 11 KO’s) and in another duel between Mexicans, Julio César “Rey” Martínez (16-1, 12 KO’s) will risk his WBC Fly World Championship for the second time, against Maximino “Max” Flores (25-4-2, 17 KO’s).
The boxing evening, which is a co-promotion of Promociones Zanfer and Matchroom Boxing, will be held behind closed doors – and broadcast on Azteca 7 and streamed by DAZN.
In September 2017, Estrada and Cuadras fought in Carson, and they staged an exciting, competitive fight, exchanging blows from start to finish.
The “Gallo” took the victory by unanimous decision, by one point on the three scorecards (114-113). Each boxer won six rounds, but a knockdown scored by Estrada in the tenth round, making that round 10-8 , was the difference.
Estrada has not fought for more than a year, since August 2019, when he knocked out Dewayne Beamon in nine rounds in Hermosillo.
