Estrada's Manager Hopes Figueroa Odds Get Crumbled

After breezing through all of the medical tests in California, number one WBC lightweight title contender, Daniel "Tremendo" Estrada, is artfully applying some light finishing touches to his carefully crafted preparations, meticulously supervised by his manager Carlos Rosales.

The evolution of a lean, mean fighting machine, is ready and waiting to take part in the fight of his life on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Southpaw Texan Omar Figueroa, who's the WBC's lightweight champion, is making the second defense of his title in what's eagerly expected to be a great fight.

"I see [Estrada being] very mentally strong. He's also fit and very fast. I hope that Daniel uses all his experience and all of his heart to bring the crown back to Mexico," commented Rosales, adding: 

"We know that Daniel is not the favorite. And that is another powerful incentive to win the crown against the odds."
