As previously reported by BoxingScene.com, Mexico's Juan Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada officially received the super flyweight championship of the World Boxing Council, and immediately said he was ready for the big fights against Jerwin Ancajas, a rematch with 'Chocolatito' González and even the trilogy with Srisaket Sor Rungvisai.
Last month, Estrada won a twelve round majority decision over Srisaket Sor Rungvisai to capture the WBC world title. It was a rematch of their 2018 encounter, which saw Sor Rungvisai win by a close decision.
About the fight against Sor Rungvisai, Estrada revealed that he was surprised that the Thai fighter fought in a left-handed stance, which allowed him to work much better than expected.
"The truth is that even I was surprised that he came from the right, which made it much easier, I have done all my fights with right handers and obviously they miscalculated the strategy," Estrada said to ESPN Deportes.
"All of my preparation was done to face a left-hander, and I was surprised by the right hand stance, but it was easier, from 1 to 9 he fought as right hander and when he changed to left-handed, it was too late, I had already won the fight and I knew he wouldn't win the fight."
Regarding his future, the pride of Puerto Penasco, Sonora, expressed that he would like to unify, but he did not rule out new fights with 'Chocolatito' or Sor Rungvisai.
"I would like to unify with any champion, I want Jerwin Ancajas, the Filipino IBF champion, that is the fight I want, but if there is another champion then why not. The fight with Román González, if he asks for it... and Sor Rungvisai, the third fight, why not ?, I will do what the team says, we will plan for what follows before going up to bantamweight."
The next fight will likely come down in July, and a location in Mexico is being explored.
