By Rafael Soto

The prodigal son returns home, Juan Francisco "Gallo" Estrada (25-2, 18 KOs) will defend his flyweight titles of the World Boxing Association (WBA) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) in his hometown of Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, on Saturday, April 26. Estrada will face experienced Filipino challenger Richie Mepranum (27-3-1, 6 KOs). Estrada is returning from a very successful 2013. He snagged victories over Brian Viloria and mandatory challenger Milan Melindo.
