Estrada is Willing To Face Arroyo or Nietes at Superfly 3

By Miguel Rivera

If there is no Srisaket Sor Rungvisai or Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez, former world champion Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada will have no problem getting in the ring with any of the best 115-pounders in the world - as part of the third edition of Superfly.

Estrada's head trainer, Alfredo Caballero, commented that they are already training for a planned return in September. And if that return is not a part of Superfly, then the talented fighter will return to the ring in Mexico, because he intends to have activity in the second half of 2018 after the close points defeat in February to Sor Rungvisai.

"We have not confirmed anything, but we are working for September. If it is the 8th as part of Superfly, even without Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, or if it is in Mexico, we will have no problem. The idea is that 'Gallo' will return in that month, and if they want to put him in with McWilliams Arroyo, with Donnie Nietes, with whomever they want at 115 pounds, we'll be there," Caballero said to ESPN Deportes.

Caballero explained that they have faith that Sor Rungvisai will not be like 'Chocolatito', who never fought the Mexican boxer in a rematch. They expect the Thai world champion to face them for a second time.

"Obviously what we want is to fight with Rungvisai or with 'Chocolatito', but if not, with someone at 115 pounds. We are ready for those levels."

On the other hand, Caballero received a special recognition from the World Boxing Council last Saturday as part of the card which featured Miguel Berchelt blasting out Jonathan Barros in Merida.

The coach said he was pleasantly surprised by Berchelt scoring a knockout in three rounds.

"The truth is that Berchelt surprised me, I expected him to get a knockout in eight or 10 rounds and he did it in three. Every time he looks stronger, faster and better. The truth is he pleasantly surprised me, and I'm glad they stopped the fight in time," Caballero said.

"He will celebrate for a few days and in 15 days we will start camp, because they told us that it is probably the fight with Miguel Roman in October."

Well, Nietes is out, he has a fight in Sept for the vacant WBO title, and he probably wants this better than Superfly 3, unless they paid him a lot. Superfly 3 won't be as exciting without the top players…

Even though he's getting older Nieres will beat them all just on his Technical skill and superb defense... he is the most underrated champion in all of the divisions...
