  • Will be a decent match up to watch. After studying both men in replays, boy, this is a tough one. I am going to lean towards Estrada this time. Why? Estrada has demonstrated the unrelenting ability never to quit in his last few fights and pulls out every trick in the book to win. He has a huge heart! Yes, Estrada makes mistakes at times and leaves himself open, has been knocked down, and does get banged up. However, I think he knows it’s redemption time now in this match up and the world is watching.

    • Well said Scooby. My heart is with Roman, and even though my sense is indicating me Estrada, I will watch the fight with my fingers crossed hoping Roman will pull this one off. Both are great, in and out of the ring and for sure hall of fame members in the future.

  • Estrada should pull this one off to set up a rubber match/trilogy by the end of the year…

  • My heart says Roman but El Gallo is still El Gallo,may the best man win!

  • I’d like to see Roman when but I believe too many miles on the odometer. Estrada is the fresher of the two and will win.. possibly late round ko.

  • Assuming Estrada wins he’ll probably face Sor Rungvisai.. either way, all 3 need to stay away from 118 and the monster

  • Estrada. With the hope it’s still good enough to pair them together again.

  • Curious. How is Estrada ranked in the top ten pound for pound fighters by the Ring magazine?
