The franchise champion of the World Boxing Council, the Mexican Juan Francisco Estrada, is ready to put on some gloves again this weekend in Hermosillo, Sonora.
After three months of training, after an absence of a year and a half, El Gallo will put on some gloves to face contender from the capital Argi Cortes, number 23 in the world in the WBC ranking.
Estrada decided to face Cortes – Nacho Beristain’s fighter – to pick up the pace for December, since he has agreed to close the trilogy against Nicaraguan Román González.
Aware of the risk that this fight brings, since Argi is younger and this will be his first approach to the elite of the division, Estrada assured that he was perfectly prepared.
“We are ready to get into the ring, I am sure it will be a great fight, I am eager to return to the ring in front of my people and Argi will want to take advantage of his opportunity, I arrive with excellent preparation and feeling 100% in every way”, declared Estrada who, at 32 years old, has a balance of 42 wins, 3 losses and 28 knockouts.
Argi, 27, is in for a chance of a lifetime and with the only two losses on his record far enough back (from when he started his career) he’s ready to take one of the divisions with the most new blood this season by storm. year.
The show also includes the rematch duel between the Mexican champion Érika Cruz and the former Canadian monarch Jelena Mrdjenovich for the World Boxing Association featherweight championship.
The other title at stake is the IBF Light Flyweight, which is vacant, and will be contested by the Mexican Héctor “Baby Bull” Flores (20-0-4, 10 ko’s) and the South African Sivenathi Nontshinga.
