Carlos Cuadras Embraces Juan Francisco Estrada Showdown

By Miguel Rivera

Carlos 'Príncipe' Cuadras  (36-1-1, 27 KOs) looks forward to a showdown with his countryman Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada  (35-2, 25 KOs).

Earlier this week, the World Boxing Council ordered the two former world champions from Mexico to face each other in a super flyweight world title eliminator.

The order was a surprise to Cuadras, because the WBC had initially ordered him to face the winner of last month's world title fight between Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez. But the controversy involved with the Sor Ringvisai vs. Gonzalez outcome created a big stir in the boxing world.

Mauricio Sulaimán , president of the WBC, revised that order and instead issued a new one where Gonzalez will get a direct rematch against Rungvisai, and now Cuadras would have face Estrada for the WBC's interim belt. And the winners of both contests will have to face each other.

"Actually I was expecting things to be different, as Mauricio had said that the winners of the event [last month] were going to face each other. But now Chocolatito has a direct rematch with Rungvisai , because I think ... [Sulaiman] views the fight between me and Estrada as being an attractive one where all of the Mexican people will see who is the best super flyweight in Mexico and then the winners can face each other," said Cuadras to El Nuevo Diario.

"I expected to have a fight with the Thai, a fight that would have been difficult, but because I had already won Rungvisai I now have to prepare and beat 'Gallo' Estrada. Of course my plan was to beat Rungvisai as I once did and then once again face Román González, because you know that all of the people are waiting and wanting that fight. The negotiations for both fights were ordered by the World Council and we can fight on the same card [as a doubleheader]."

"I was a bit discouraged by that new order, but it also motivates me a lot to face 'Gallo' Estrada as he is an elite opponent and I have always said that to be the best you have to beat the best, and I think 'Gallo ' Estrada is among the best and we are going to be see who is the strongest Mexican super flyweight who can move forward to face the other international fighters."

[QUOTE=SensFullViolenc;17571359]Im Mexican, and all this hate of Chocolatito is pretty pathetic. Saying that he has a weak resume is just stupid. I mean people are accusing him of avoiding 2 excellent fighters -- even though he already fought them. And…
