Loeffler Gives Details of "Superfly 3" Tripleheader For HBO

By Steve Kim

On September 8th the third edition of 'SuperFly' will be staged at the Forum in Los Angeles.

This series on HBO which was created to spotlight the 115-division and originally the likes of future Hall-of-Famer, Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez, moves forward with new names being featured.

Tom Loeffler, the head of 360 Promotions said to BoxingScene.com - "It's another great lineup, this is one of the most popular series on television for boxing, it's among the highest television ratings and just the fan approval from 'SuperFly 1' and 'SuperFly 2, now 'SuperFly 3, we'll have some great fighters on it."

Loeffler continued - "We're going to make an official announcement shortly. But Donnie Nietes is going to fight for the vacant world title at 115-pounds. Donnie was on 'SuperFly 2' had a great victory so it will be great to have him back,"said Loeffler, of the accomplished Filipino who has a mark of 41-1-4 (23 KO's) and defeated Juan Carlos Reveco in seven rounds back at the Forum on February 24th. Nietes, who has won titles in three weight classes is schedule to face Aston Palicte.

"There will be a couple of other great names on there," explained Loeffler.

"(Juan Francisco) Estrada, we're going to bring him back. He desperately wants the rematch with Srisaket Sor Rungvisai for that WBC title. That was really one of the leading candidates for 'fight of the year'. So if Estrada has another big win on HBO, then I could see them doing that rematch at the beginning of next year."

Estrada (36-3, 25 KO's), a former unified champion at 112, went 12 entertaining rounds with the Thai champion back on 'SuperFly 2' and lost a close decision.

"This will be a triple-header so we're just working out the details of a third fight and it looks like Kazuto Ioka is going to be that third fight," said Loeffler, who has reportedly signed the three-weight division champion to 360 Promotions.

"So it will be a tremendous show for the fans on September 8th at the Fabulous Forum in Los Angeles."

Only dentheads who DKSAB don't get hyped up for Superfly. Still, this one might not be as good as the last two for various reasons.

Tom Loeffler is a con-man , a used car salesmen slime ball. He's stealing hard earned money from fighter's. All the fighter's on these Super Fly cards complained about the poor pathetic purses. Shame on you Tom Loeffler , u…
