Fresh off his knockout victory over Rafael Marquez earlier this month, Efrain Esquivias has a lot of options open for his immediate future.
One option could be a return to the ring in December, according to Alex Camponovo, who notified late last week. Camponovo is the General manager and matchmaker for Thompson Boxing Promotions.

“Efrain was back in the gym the Tuesday after the fight,” said Camponovo. “That shows he wants to get back in the ring right away.”
While a December return could be in Esquivias’ future, he is setting his sights on a possible high-profile fight against one of boxing’s brightest stars. That star is Leo Santa Cruz, who won the WBC super bantamweight title against Victor Terrazas on August 24th.

“The super bantamweight division is filled with great fighters and champions, but the one guy that I would love to tangle with in the ring is WBC champion Leo Santa Cruz,” said Esquivias in a press release on Tuesday. “It will be an exciting fight for the fans, I like to throw a lot of punches and so does Santa Cruz. It would be a great fight.”

Esquivias (17-2, 10 KOs) might get that opportunity now considering Anselmo Moreno turned down a fight with Santa Cruz, who is penciled to fight on November 2nd.

There could be another fight for Esquivias, should a fight with Santa Cruz not be made. Manager Frank Espinoza contacted recently and suggested a fight between Esquivias and unbeaten featherweight Ronny Rios.

The fight between Esquivias and Rios would be well-received in Southern California, where both reside, considering both have large followings.

Camponovo likes the idea of a possible fight between Esquivias and Rios.

“I know Ronny very well as he fought on our shows early in his career. We’re open to that fight. We will pursue the best fight for Efrain and if the numbers add up and there is demand for that fight, then we could see it happening.”
