In an all out war, WBC super flyweight champion Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada (41-3, 28 KOs) scored a spectacular eleventh round TKO against Carlos “Principe” Cuadras (39-4-1, 27 KOs) in a rematch on Friday night at TV Azteca Studios in Mexico City. It was toe-to-toe action from the get-go as both were happy to trade. Cuadras dropped Estrada in round three, but Estrada recovered well. In round eleven, Estrada dropped Cuadras twice and got the stoppage with his follow-up assault. Time was 2:22.

If it wasn’t for Zepeda-Baranchyk, this could well have been Fight of the Year.

  • Great fight, great end with Cuadras showing an unnatural heart amid of an imminent defeat. The second time Cuadras went down, should have been the end of the fight, but for some how the referee allowed him to continue, just to receive an unnecessary and dangerous punishment.
    I think Estrada could be too much for Roman Gonzalez if they fight again, as has been planned.
    I prefer Estrada vs Ancajas or the banger Julio Cesar Martinez instead.

  • It was an unbelievable night of boxing. Martinez showed his dominance in the flyweight division and Chocolatito looked like the vintage Chocolatito that we have seen in the past. He just outworked Israel Gonzalez in most of the rounds and came away with a decisive win.

    Estrada started much faster in the rematch against Cuadras, but found himself on the canvas in the third round. Cuadras gave a good account of himself but Estrada had the upper hand in most of the rounds. After a close 10th round, Estrada came out much more aggressively in the 11th and hurt Cuadras with a body shot. He proceeded to knock him down twice before the fight was stopped. I thought the ref would stop the fight after the second knockdown, but Cuadras came back fighting just to get rocked again before the ref mercifully called the fight to a halt.

    This now sets up a rematch between Chocolatito and Estrada. They both looked good tonight, but it seems to me Estrada is the sharper puncher and should gain revenge for the close loss he suffered to Gonzalez many years ago.

  • Muchos Gracias Estrada y Cuadras! Two Pitbulls in there tonight had me laughing out loud after every round with excitement

  • What a beautiful fight, that was everything that is great about boxing roller into 11 rounds!

  • Great fight, but was I the only one to notice the back acne? That, to me explains the way the fight unfolded.

    • Christopher R Paráis, cuadras has always had that back acne. I remember reading he had a drug use problem. Some drugs can cause that. What do you think it is?

  • See? Canelo is not even the number one pound-for-pound fighter in his own country. Estrada is.

  • The art of boxing:how one who looks to be defeated gathers himself and finds another way to defeat his opponent.beautiful fighter Mr.Estrada
