Estrada's Promoter Expects Chocolatito To Get KO'd in Rematch

By Miguel Rivera

Juan Hernandez of Latin Sports Boxing, who co-promote (with Zanfer) now former world flyweight champion Juan Francisco Estrada, believes his boxer will score a knockout win over WBC super flyweight champion Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez in a rematch.

Gonzalez won a tough twelve round decision over Estrada back in 2012 at the junior flyweight limit. Estrada says he nearly killed his body to drop down to that weight.

Estrada is now heading up to super flyweight and makes his debut in that division on October 8th.


Estrada has been out of the ring since last after having an operation on his hand. Hernandez has been reading some of the statements from Gonzalez, who doesn't seem too interested in a rematch with Estrada - unless there is a lot of money involved in the pot.

"First of all, we are excited by the return of Juan Francisco after the operation he had, and the doctor told us that he is one hundred percent and hopefully inactivity will not cause an affect and we will see 'Gallo' at 100 percent," Hernandez said to ESPN Deportes.

"And on 'Chocolatito', as they say, it seems that he's beginning to feel the footsteps on the roof. We were listening to some statements where he wants to get away from Estrada, but we know that this fight is going to happen at some point, and when it does Estrada is going to knock him out."

"Four years have passed [since their fight]. Estrada has matured as a boxer, with fights against Brian Viloria, Giovani Segura. He's become a better fighter and dominated the flyweight division and he will do the same in super flyweight. You will see him against Naoya Inoue, Jerwin Ancajas, Luis Concepcion, Carlos Cuadras."

Hernandez said that if Estrada wins on October 8 in his native Sonora against Raymond Tabugon, then he may come back in December. He would like Estrada to fight in the Arena Mexico City with Carlos Cuadras, if they can reach an agreement soon.

"That fight with Cuadras we would like for this year or next, depending on the team behind Cuadras. But if we can not do it in December, we will look for the following year."

[QUOTE=Mexican_Puppet;17082022]Dude, that's because Estrada was drained in 108 pounds but he will destroy Gonzalez in the rematch. Estrada is very strong in a natural weight, like he showed vs Segura that was kinda Margarito in 112 pounds and Juan made…

Either of these three is an OK fight for Gonzalez: - inoue - cuadras 2 - estrada 2 or even that thai guy that punches like a mule
