Estrada: I Want Sor Rungvisai, And To Avenge Loss To Chocolatito

Former world champion Juan Francisco Estrada is preparing himself for a headline bout on HBO, which is scheduled to take place on September 8th from The Forum in Los Angeles, California.

Edtrada (36-3-0, 25 KO’s) will collide in the main event with two-time world title challenger Felipe Orucuta (36-4-0, 30 KO’s).

The contest was been approved as a WBC super flyweight eliminator - with the winner getting in line for a potential crack at current world champion Srisaket Sor Rungvusai.

Earlier this year, Estrada lost a close twelve round decision to Sor Rungvisai and now wants a rematch.

He is also looking to avenge a 2012 decision loss to Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez - in a fight which took place at junior flyweight.

"I wanted the rematch with Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, hopefully that can happen at Superfly 4. I would also like to fight ‘Chocolatito’ and avenge my loss from 2012,” Estrada said.

“I would like to thank ‘Chocolatito for opening the doors to our weight class which enables us to fight on HBO and at the Forum on such big shows. I’m training very hard for this fight in the mountains of Mexico and will be ready for victory and to put on a great show on September 8.”

Gonzalez, who suffered back to back defeats to Sor Rungvisai, will return on September 15th, as part of the HBO PPV undercard to the Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin rematch at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He faces Moises Fuentes.

He was present at the Superfly 3 press conference on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

“I’m blessed to be part of this series and look forward to fighting and being victorious on September 15 in Las Vegas. Good luck to all the champions on this dais and I wish you all the very best and look forward to seeing your fights on September 8,” Gonzalez said.

Promoter Tom Loeffler, and many others, credit Gonzalez as being the driving force behind the Superfly series.

“Roman ‘Chocalatito’ Gonzalez. Roman truly spear headed the interest in the super flyweight division when he knocked out Edgar Sosa in May 2016 as a flyweight on HBO and at the Forum. He also had the sensational victory over Carlos Cuadras to become a four-time world champion capturing the WBC super flyweight Title headlining on HBO and at the Forum," Loeffler said.

I’d love to see him avenge both losses. I think he can do it. A Rungvusai re-match and if he wins a Chocolatito re-match is big money for both and a great show for the fans.
