Juan Francisco Estrada Will Aim To Knock Sor Rungvisai Out

By Miguel Rivera

Former world champion Juan Francisco Estrada will aim to leave no doubt on Saturday night, and vows to take advantage of the opportunity to win the super flyweight title of the World Boxing Council (WBC).

Estrada is not looking to take any chances when he steps in the ring with world champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand.

The fight, which takes place at the Forum in Inglewood, California, will be televised by HBO.

After eight weeks of work, Estrada closed his training camp this past Friday at Caballero's Boxing Club.

The 27-year-old former world champion was in good condition, explosive and fast during four sparring rounds with Oscar  Castillo and Roberto "Tornadito" Sánchez, 

"We do not know if we are going to get to the last round, I am a fighter who goes from less to more and we will go looking for the knockout to leave no doubt and return with that belt," said Estrada.

"I am very motivated by this fight and very well prepared. I am excited to think about the WBC belt because it is a Mexican organization and I will not let this opportunity pass. He is a fighter that we have to be careful with. In the first round we will see how he's going to fight... most of all it will be a round of studying him, and from there we will box him and we will work hard on his weak points - which is his defense."

Estrada will enter the ring with a record of 36-2 and 25 by the knockout. Sor Rungiviai comes into the fight on the back of a huge year, after winning back to back fights against Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez. He won a controversial twelve round decision over Gonzalez in March, and then set the record straight in their fall rematch by scoring a sensational fourth round knockout.

IF gallo can keep sor honest and make him respect his power, and also be able to take sors power in return, then I believe he outboxes sor convincingly as I see him as a more polished boxer with the…
