On a night in which Vergil Ortiz Jr. shined, it was Seniesa Estrada who would create a highlight-reel moment. The flyweight star only needed seven seconds to take out her opponent in Golden Boy’s return to action.
Estrada (19-0) easily took care of the 42-year-old Miranda Adkins inside the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. She landed five shots that would end up being enough, as Adkins (5-1) went down to the mat immediately. It took her a while to get back up to her feet and the KO ended up being one of the fastest knockouts in boxing (male or female) history.
As a result of the win, Estrada graduated from interim to the undisputed WBC Silver Light-Flyweight Champion.

The original opponent for Estrada was Jacky Calvo, who had to back out at the last minute. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and a lack of resources, Adkins ended up getting the call. Adkins made her pro debut in 2018 and fought three times in 2019. All five of her wins have come via TKO.
Estrada now has eight wins via knockout, with a career that started in 2011. Before the bout, Estrada would tell Boxing Scene about a future fight she would be interested in. One of Mexico’s top stars, who is the WBC Bantamweight Champion, could be available for her to face if everything goes according to plan.
“I would like to fight Mariana Juarez,” Estrada stated. “I know she’s bigger but she fought at 115 before winning the bantamweight title. If she can get to 115, I can eat whatever I want and get to 113 and it would be an epic fight.”
