After nearly a decade, the long-awaited rematch between the WBC and The Ring super flyweight champion Juan Francisco Estrada and WBA (Super) champion Roman “Chocolatito” González in a unification showdown will take place on Saturday the 13th. March at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. .
The two first met in 2012 when Chocolatito defeated the promising man by unanimous decision in a light flyweight showdown. But it was in that fight that Estrada (41-3, 28 KOs) proved he would be a force in the boxing world for years to come. Estrada would win 15 of his next 16 fights, and his only loss came to Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, who was fresh off back-to-back victories over Chocolatito. Estrada would avenge that loss with a solid unanimous decision victory over Sor Rungvisai to claim the WBC and The Ring super flyweight championships.
Gonzalez (50-2, 41 KOs) was once recognized as the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world after Floyd Mayweather retired from the sport. His career was relatively short-lived as he bit off more than he could chew against Sor Rungvisai and dropped a decision before being knocked out in the rematch. Chocolatito was supposed to have been in too many wars and the end of his career might be near. Instead, the Nicaraguan would get back on his winning path with four straight wins, including his impressive ninth-round stoppage of Kal Yafai to claim the WBA (Super) super flyweight title.
With Estrada now seen as the king of the division, can Chocolatito prove he has the number of his enemy in the rematch, or will Estrada send a message to the boxing world that he is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world today? day?
The co-main event finds Jessica McCaskill (9-2, 3 KOs) defending her WBC, IBF, WBO and WBA women’s welterweight titles in a rematch with Cecilia Braekhus (36-1, 9 KOs). McCaskill stunned previously undefeated Braekhus last August with a hotly contested decision victory. McCaskill was out of the gates quickly and Braekhus was forced to close the fight hard if she had any chance of coming from behind. The judges gave the fight to McCaskill, but Braekhus wants to prove that she is the best woman, as she plans to claim titles that many believe she should never have lost. But tough McCaskill has no plans to hand over the titles after fighting so hard to be in this position.
