  • That was exciting, what a swing in fight action and control. Estrada nearly gave that one away in the last few rounds. I think we need a 4th.

  • Chocolatito took too long to get going, looked old first half of the dight and then came to life and nearly pulled it out of the bag. Apparently they are good friends now, must be hard to fight a friend and still try to knock him out

  • Very good fight, but not nearly as good as the last one. Both guys showed some signs of age. Tough to give away the first five rounds and win a decision. Shades of Loma-Teo. Props to both men who are destined for the hall of fame.

  • This is the real number one pound for pound fighter from mexico, and not Canelo. Estrada is a real Mexican warrior who fights the very best in most of his fights, and does it without silly conditions. Unlike his countryman.

  • I called a few days ago that age was a factor, in their primes Chocolatito wins 9 fights out of 10..

  • LEGENDS!! While I wouldn’t mind seeing a 4th fight, I would rather see Estrada fight Bam Rodriguez! As for Chocolatito, don’t know what his financial situation is like? If it’s great, retirement wouldn’t be such a bad thing! Would really hate to see some up and coming young gun take him out. First ballot Hall of Famers nonetheless!!

  • Good fight. You could tell that the judge that gave it 116-112 had already made his mind about who was gonna get the win rven before the fight started. Chocolatito on this fight.
