Estrada Argi

WBC super flyweight champion Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada (42-3, 28 KOs) will defend his world 115lb title for the fourth time, when he faces Argi Cortés (23-2, 10 KOs) on September 3 at the Centro de Usos Múltiples in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. The bout will air on DAZN in the U.S., Azteca 7 in Mexico, and ESPN Knock Out in Latin America.

The fighters faced off today at the WBC’s “Coffee Tuesday” press conference in Mexico City.

Juan Francisco Estrada: “I am ready to make this defense, fully recovered from any injuries and very focused for this fight, which will be a war. Argi Cortés is a very good fighter, with a very good corner, and we are going to give the fans a great fight, because I am sure that we will both arrive with excellent preparation.”

Argi Cortés: “We are going to arrive with an excellent preparation, we know the quality of ‘Gallo’ Estrada but we also know what we have to do to beat him. I agree that it will be a great fight, I respect Estrada, but on September 3 I will surprise the world of boxing with my victory.”

  • I heard he was taking a tuneup in Mexico and here it is. That’s fine, he’s been out a year and a half. Estrada gets this out of the way and next year 115 should be on fire. Between Estrada, Chocolatito, Ioka, Bam, Martinez & Ancajas and even Donaire, that should be a great division to watch in 2023.

  • Here we go with this nonsense. The WBC is no different from the WBA with its multiple champions in the same weight class. Is Estrada the champ or Bam Rodriguez? Why didn’t Fightnews make it clear that Estrada is the franchise champion? I swear that these news outlets are complicit with the organizations to legitimize this foolishness.
