Yokasta Valle was direct and to the point with the callout.

“Seniesa Estrada, next fight,” the defending WBO/IBF strawweight titlist said in perfect English in her burning desire to further unify the division. “When we fight, I want to fill the San Jose soccer stadium with 50,000 in attendance.”

The answer was locked in the chamber well before the three-division titleholder soundly outpointed former WBA titlist Anabel Ortiz over ten rounds. Their unified WBO/IBF strawweight title fight took place in front of a capacity crowd of more than 5,000 Saturday evening at Polideportivo de Cartago in Cartago, Costa Rica.

Valle (30-2, 9KOs)—who hails from nearby San Jose—fought for the third time this year and the eighth time in a span of less than 23 months. She has spent all year in pursuit of East Los Angeles’ Estrada (25-0, 9KOs), the two-division and reigning WBC/WBA strawweight champion.

The two have traded words for the better part of the past two years but are no closer to a head-on collision.

Estrada sent a message with her first fight of the year. She scored a ten-round shutout of unbeaten WBC titlist Tina Rupprecht, who defeated Valle by unanimous decision in their June 2018 interim title fight. Estrada won every round in their March 25 clash to unify the WBC and WBA belts.

Her next fight saw Estrada overcome an aggravated ligament and a relentless Leonela Yudica to take a hard-fought unanimous decision at The Palms in Las Vegas. Valle was in attendance at the intimate venue, which left her unimpressed compared to the massive crowds she packs in whenever she fights at home.

Valle drew a packed house for her IBF/WBO unification win over Thi Thu Nhi Nguyen last September in her San Jose hometown. Another capacity crowd was on hand Saturday, as was the case in her March 25 win over then-unbeaten challenger Jennifer Basulto Salazar in Guanacaste on the same night as Estrada-Rupprecht in Fresno, California.

“She will have to come here,” Valle insisted on the location for their undisputed clash, should that day ever arrive. ‘I fill stadiums, not ballrooms.”
