Estrada: Rematch Will Be Better Than The First Fight
Super flyweight champion Mexico's Juan Francisco Estrada (41-3 28 KOs) believes his upcoming rematch with Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez (50-2 41 KOs) of Nicaragua will be an even better fight than their first battle as the clash. Estrada defends his WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine World Super-Flyweight titles on Saturday March 13 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, live on DAZN.
Estrada and Gonzalez met back in November of 2012 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. Gonzalez defeated Estrada via unanimous decision but Estrada proved to be worthy. In his following fight Estrada would capture his first world title defeating Brian Viloria. Chocolatito Gonzalez would go on the top of the pound for pound list.
“I am stronger and have more desire than the first fight,” said Estrada. “We are both champions and we are going to want to win this fight. In the first fight, I was 21 years old and I had no experience of big international fights, he was a pound for pound star at that time but now I think this time it favors me.
“We are fighting two weight classes above the first fight, so it is already very different. I know that I can win this time. I know it’s a tough fight and I think it will be a better fight, but I have already faced him, I know his qualities and I feel that I can beat a fighter who has been knocked out.”
