Mexican WBC super flyweight world champion Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada is set to defend his title in a rematch duel against his Mexican compatriot former world champ Carlos “Príncipe” Cuadras THIS Friday, October 23, in Ciudad de México.
Juan Francisco “El Gallo” Estrada (40-3 27 KO’s) will be making the 2nd defense of his WBC 115 belt after stopping Dewayne Beamon in 9 rounds in August of last year in Hermosillo, México.
Then, 4 months later, Estrada defeated tough Thailand star Srisaket Sor Rungvisai with a brilliant performance in their rematch in Los Angeles, California.
Estrada and Cuadras fought for the 1st time 3 years ago.
It was a competitive confrontation in which Estrada dropped Cuadras to the canvas in the 11th round.
That knockdown was decisive for the 3 judges to awarded the victory to Estrada by 1 single point.
Will something similar happen again this Friday? Who will defeat who?
Estrada vs Cuadras 2 is co-promoted by Matchroom Boxing and Promociones Zanfer.
The rumble will air live in Mexico on TV Azteca 7, in Latin America on ESPN, and around the world on DAZN.
