Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada and Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez faced off at the launch press conference for their WBC super flyweight title on June 29 at Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, live worldwide on DAZN.

Juan Francisco Estrada: “I think Bam is a good fighter but you do have to say that. But I think if you look at his best victories like Cuadras, Rungvisai, then those guys were on the way out. The only good victory that he’s had was the Sunny Edwards fight, which I was present for. Obviously that was at a lower weight and we’ll have to see what he’s like up here fighting against me at this higher weight class because I think that will be the difference on the night. Let’s see what happens on June 29 because I also come into this with a winning mentality and the mentality of winning this fight convincingly. If it is by KO, then even better.”

Jesse Rodriguez: When it’s just me and him in the ring, I’m going to take what he has. I’m a different breed and I’m a different animal. Come June 29 the whole world is going to see that. I’ve proved people wrong, time after time. I’m just here to prove people wrong…people didn’t think I could stop Sunny [Edwards]. I’m pretty sure they don’t expect me to stop Estrada. But I believe in myself that I can do it and my team believes it. It’s a very hard task to do but it is possible because nothing is impossible. So, come June 29 I feel like I am going to shock the world.

  • I have the feeling Bam Rodriguez will stop Gallo Estrada in a memorable fight

  • If Bam wins this fight, that’s wins 3/4 original ‘superflys’, four time world champion, once unified. For me that’s borderline HOF material and he’s just like 24,25.

    • I think he wins Lucie, I also think he would run the table and go 4 for 4 with all four super flys.

      • The fourth would be Chocolatito. I think he’d beat him at this point, but supposedly they’re pretty good friends and wouldn’t fight each other.

  • bam is “cleaning house ” in these flyweight divisions. congratulations to him and the older champs willing to fight him . these are real fighters. the other ” diva fighters/celebrities/social media stars ” should take notice on how its done professionally and with respect to the sport of boxing.
