Estrada Signs with Matchroom Boxing USA
WBC Super Flyweight Champion Juan Francisco Estrada has signed a co-promotional deal with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing USA and Zanfer Promotions.
“I’m delighted to welcome pound-for-pound star Juan Estrada to the team,” Hearn said. “We have been working closely with Zanfer over the last year and this is an exciting addition to DAZN. Estrada was outstanding in capturing the WBC and Ring Magazine belts in LA in April and looks now to move on and unify the division. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
In April, Estrada, who is also a former WBA and WBO flyweight champion, defeated Srisaket Sor Rungivsai in a rematch of their February 2018 encounter to claim the WBC 115-pound title. That was Estrada’s third straight win since dropping the original meeting between the pair and his 13th win in his last 14 fights.
Estrada plans to announce a title defense next week, as he looks to unify the super flyweight division.
“I look forward to defending my title for Mexico and for all my fans and hopefully I can soon unify titles with the other champions of the division,” Estrada said. “I’m very motivated being champion once again and I’m ready to show that I’m a champion to be reckoned with.”
