Estrada Ready To Turn Melindo Back in Macao Defense

By Miguel Rivera

Juan Francisco "Gallo" Estrada is ready to make the first defense of his WBA and WBO flyweight titles against dangerous Filipino mandatory challenger Milan "The Methodical" Melindo (29-0, 12KO). The fight will take place on July 27 in the Cotai Arena in the Venetian of Macao, China.

Estrada and Melindo both fought on the same card on the 6th of April in Macao. Juan Francisco became the double world champion by defeating Brian Viloria, and Melindo earned the number one rank of the WBO.

"I am ready to face any opponent. I will prepare harder than ever to retain my title. I want to prove I'm the best and for that I must contend with the best. Melindo is undefeated and he will attempt to become champion, but I'll do what I have to do in the ring," Estrada said.

Wish him the best of luck getting past Melindo. If he does so and like a poster before me said,he fights Tysonito Marquez..then a war is brewing. This kid has me excited to see him fight again.
