AT&T Center, San Antonio, Texas - Three-time world champion Seniesa "Super Bad" Estrada (22-0, 9 KOs) maintained her WBA minimumweight world title in a scheduled 10-round fight against the fierce Maria "La Imparable" Santizo (9-1, 5 KOs) of Guatemala City, Gua.
Now Estrada wants to unify her division in the coming year.
“I give my performance a ‘C’ today because I was getting too ahead of myself. I wanted to the knockout too early so I got caught a few times trying to set it up,” said Estrada.
“She was a tough fighter, she is 9-0 with 5 knock outs for a reason, so I knew she was coming in to win. But I knew I had to stop her I just had to be more patient. In 2022 I want to unify the division with a fight against IBF world champion Yokasta Valle from Costa Rica.”
Both women came to win, as they quickly exchanged blows as they tried to find each other’s weaknesses. Estrada, had an easier time connecting and knocked down Santizo in the second round twice.
Visibly rocked and saved by the bell, Santizo came back in the third round to try to establish dominance. However, ‘Super Bad’ stopped Santizo quickly on the 1:51 mark of the third round, winning the fight by knockout.
“Honestly I felt super prepared for this fight,” said Santizo.
"Seniesa, however, knew how to connect. We fell to the canvas but I feel good, I think maybe the stoppage was too anticipated. But I defer to the referee who is there to protect our health. Now I have to go back to the gym, train and wait for the next opportunity.”
