WBC "Franchise" super flyweight champion Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada has now fully recovered from COVID-19 and is training for his next fight.

The virus forced him to withdraw from a planned trilogy fight with Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, who then fought and dominated WBC flyweight champion Julio Cesar Martinez, who moved up a weight class to take on the formidable Nicaraguan.

In a glittering career, Gallo has also fought Carlos Cuadras twice and Srisaket Sor Rungvisai twice. Now, he`s on the way back.

At the World Boxing Council`s Martes A Cafe Press Conference in Sports and Chips, Mexico City, Francisco (42-3, 28 KO`s) is looking in superb shape said his return fight will be on August 27th in the Border City of Sonora, against an opponent to be determined.

When Estrada was made the WBC's Franchise champion, it was Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez who became the 'regular' champion of the weight class.

Rodriguez has been making huge waves in the weight class with his dominant win over Cuardas and recent beatdown and stoppage of Sor Rungivisai.

At some point, the WBC will have to order a fight between Rodriguez and Estrada to establish a single WBC champion in the weight class.

Estrada is really looking forward to that fight.

“Jesse Rodriguez is a young man who brings everything. He is a great fighter who is a tricky southpaw. Hopefully we`ll fight in the coming year. It will be a great fight against him," Estrada said.

As for the recuperation from COVID-19, Estrada said it started in January and hit him hard for a month and affected his breathing, but he`s overcome it and looking forward to big fights to come.
