According to the World Boxing Council, citing trainer Joel Diaz, WBC lightweight champion Omar Figueroa is potentially going to return on August 16th against mandatory challenger Daniel Estrada (32-2-1, 24KOs).

The would be the second fight of the year for Figueroa (23-0-1, 17 KOs), who won a twelve round split decision over amateur rival Jerry Belmontes a few months ago.

If the date remains solid, Figueroa-Estrada could be part of Golden Boy Promotions' upcoming card at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Shawn Porter will defend his IBF welterweight title against mandatory Kell Brook and WBC champion Sakio Bika will defend his title against Anthony Dirrell.

Leo Santa Cruz on this card would make it a nice quadrupleheader

When is this dude gonna step up ? He was given a belt by de la Hoya & haymon by fighting nobody's and St hasn't fought anyone ....fought a mediocre Arakawa and belmontes made him look very amateurish ! Figueroa imo is very overrated & will get outclassed by any top lightweight

I like Omar, a gutsy warrior and I know his hands don't hold up too well but I want to see him in there with other big fish at 135. There's a thread stating Rocky Martinez is moving up, Martinez vs Figueroa would be a dog fight. Gamboa can stay at 135 for one more fight against Omar for another g...
