Puerto Peñasco’s boxing pride, Juan Francisco “El Gallo” Estrada will go into the ring again on December 8th, headlining the night in a face off against Hermosillo boxer Victor “Spock” Mendez in the Stubhub Center in Carson, California, to be televised on HBO.
One time WBO/WBA flyweight champion, “Gallo” Estrada has been training in Los Angeles, CA and says he’s read to fight Mendez, considering him to be a strong rival and guaranteeing a good night of battle in the ring between the two from Sonora. Saturday’s fights will also include World welter weight champion Cecilia Braekhus, who will take on Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes of Poland. The night will also feature Claressa “Flex” Shields vs Femke Hermans for the World Middleweight Championship.
Curiously, after taking both the WBA and WBO flyweight titles, in recent years Estrada purposefully set out to conquer the super flyweight title.
Sports bars across Puerto Peñasco are set to televise Gallo’s Dec. 8th match on HBO, check local times.
