Juan Francisco Estrada Wants Cuadras if Chocolatito Won't Fight

By Miguel Rivera

Former unified champion Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada (34-2, 24 KOs) is raising his hand, because he's ready to fight Carlos Cuadras (35-1-1, 27 KOs) - if WBC super flyweight champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez refuses to rematch the Mexican fighter.

Chocolatito won a twelve round decision over Cuadras in September to become the first boxer to win four world titles in four weight divisions.

There is talk of a rematch between the two for March 18th, as part of the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard to Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs. But Chocolatito wants to get paid a lot more money for the second fight or else he's not interested in going forward with the contest.

Promoter Juan Hernandez of Latin Sports, who handle Estrada with Zanfer Promotions, says the boxer will return to the ring in the early part of 2017.

Hernandez would like the WBC to sanction Estrada vs. Cuadras as a final eliminator, with the WBC interim-title at stake, and the winner gets an immediate mandatory shot at Chocolatito. Estrada lost a twelve round decision to Chocolatito back in 2012 at junior flyweight. He's been chasing the opportunity to get revenge for several years and recently vacated his WBA/WBO flyweight titles to continue his hunt for revenge by moving up to 115-pounds.

"The initial plan is for Estrada to get into the ring in late February or early March, and we've seen Chocolatito sees something unsafe in fighting again with Cuadras and we would like that option of a fight between Estrada and Cuadras if Chocolatito continue with his things 'Chocolatito'. It would be a great fight between two Mexicans for the World Boxing Council title," Hernandez said in an interview with ESPN Deportes.

According to WBC President Mauricio Sulaimán, if Chocolatito does not go forward with the rematch against Cuadras, he will be forced to take on his mandatory challenger Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand.

[QUOTE=HandsofIron;17309178]I'd rather see Cuadras-Estrada mix it up than a Gonzalez rematch.[/QUOTE] Yeah, me too. It was a clear enough win that we don't really need to see it again and this fight would give a great indicator via comparison. Maybe…
