McCaskill Braekhus Rematch & Kyouguchi vs. Vega Added to Estrada Gonzalez Card
The rematch is on as undisputed world welterweight champion Jessica McCaskill (9-2 3 KOs) takes on Cecelia Brækhus (36-1 9 KOs) will square off for McCaskill's undisputed titles and Hiroto Kyoguchi (14-0 9 KOs) will defend his WBA and Ring Magazine World light flyweight titles against Axel Vega (14-3-1 8 KOs) as part of the undercard headlined by the rematch between Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez on March 13 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, live on DAZN.
McCaskill defeated Braekhus last August in handing the former champion her first defeat. McCaskill looks to prove the first time wasn't a fluke.
“I interrupted her career in the first fight,” said McCaskill. “I will end her career in the rematch."
“I’m very focused on regaining all of my undisputed belts on March 13 in the rematch against Jessica,” said Brækhus. “It will be a very special night in Dallas for my supporters and for all of my worldwide fans who can watch the fight on the DAZN.”
New Matchroom signing Hiroto Kyoguchi will defend his WBA and Ring Magazine world light flyweight titles against Axel Vega.
"I’m very happy to make my debut in the US under the guidance and management of Eddy Reynoso and with my promoter Eddie Hearn and Matchroom," said Kyoguchi. "I want to thank them for the chance to prove that Japanese boxing is the best in the world. I am very grateful to them and we will put everything into becoming a star in the boxing world."
“I’m very happy to receive this world title shot,” said Vega. “Kyoguchi is a great champion but I’m a hungry young contender and will conquer the championship on March 13. I want to thank my promoter Tuto Zabala Jr (All Star Boxing) for turning around so quickly, one week after signing and here is my chance, also to my manager Joe Gonzalez and to Eddie Hearn.”
“This is a huge night of boxing in Dallas,” said Hearn. “Cecilia and Jessica will put it all on the line in their rematch for the undisputed Welterweight title and Hirotu is a fighter that I am excited to see explode onto the big stage under the guidance of his manager Eddy Reynoso and Matchroom.
“With a brilliant main event in the rematch between Estrada and Chocolatito and plenty of young talents to be added to the card, this is an unmissable feast of fights for the fans in Dallas and on DAZN.”
