Estrada's Coach Confident Knockout of Sor Rungvisai is Possible

By Miguel Rivera

Alfredo Caballero, the trainer of former world champion Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada, is confident that his boxer will be able to defeat, even via knockout, WBC super flyweight king Srisaket Sor Rungvisai.

The contest will take place on April 26 at the Forum in Inglewood, in an evening being staged by Matchroom Boxing and Zanfer Promotions.

With three weeks training at the top in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Caballero stressed that, unlike last year when they lost a close decision, the injuries that plagued Estrada are now gone and that has allowed him to work better for what they consider the most important fight of his career.

The rematch would be held in April in Los Angeles, according to the promoter Fernando Beltrán, and will be carried by the DAZN streaming service.

"We are working hard in Los Mochis, it is the third time we have come here, it is a land of champions, there are many fighters, many gyms and we prepare very well," Caballero said to ESPN Deportes.

"The first adjustment (for the rematch with Rungvisai) is to avoid injuries. Many people do not know, for the first fight Juan Francisco managed to train like three weeks, there were three serious injuries, in the spine, in the knee and another in the neck that took him to the hospital for a week and when he came out there was nothing more because there were three weeks to go for the fight.

"We decided to bring people in to help us avoid what happened last time, where we gave a great fight (in the first) but we were not well prepared. He gave a great fight because he is a strong and intelligent person and knew how to handle the fight, but this time I think it will be something similar like it was with Giovani Segura, where I see the opportunity to knock him out in the late rounds."

Srisaket will KO Estrada easy. He takes it easy in the first fight like Chocolito then shows his true power. Angry Juan fans will come like last time.

Looking forward to the fight. I've got a feeling Estrada will get the W this time.

I felt Estrada struggled to come to terms with the speed and strength of SSR early but then figured him out a bit and looked the better fighter at the end. A year on with SSR tight at the weight…

should be a great fight. I'm rooting for estrada to kick his ass. set up a third fight which would be another potential fight of the year from these two.

i think estrada will win by ko also. every time there's a big fight like this and the rematch happens, the mexicans usually always come out the winner. they're just better prepared. the thai's will stick to the same game…
