Estrada and Chocolatito renew their rivalry over eight years since their first meeting in LA, with Chocolatito coming out on top and retaining his World Light-Flyweight title. The champion was on his way to being the pound-for-pound number one at the time of their first bout, while Estrada was in his first World title fight – and now they both hold belts going into the rematch.
There’s another case of repeat or revenge as Jessica McCaskill (9-2 3 KOs) defends the undisputed World Welterweight title against Cecilia Braekhus (36-1 9 KOs) and there’s a Matchroom debut on the card for Hiroto Kyoguchi (14-0 9 KOs) as he defends his WBA and Ring Magazine World Light-Flyweight titles against Axel Vega (14-3-1 8 KOs), and it’s a huge night for a clutch of rising talents on the bill.
