CHOCOLATITO ALSO NOTCHES A WIN TO SET UP REMATCH WITH EL GALLO
WBC Super Flyweight Champion Juan Francisco “El Gallo” Estrada and Carlos “El Principe” Cuadras fought tooth and nail for eleven rounds Friday night in Mexico City for El Gallo’s WBC title.
El Gallo would ultimately win by TKO in round eleven to retain his title, but not before engaging in fight of the year with El Principe Cuadras.
Both fighters fought at a high technical level and both fighters came to fight, leaving everything in the ring while giving the boxing fans watching on DAZN and TV Azteca their money’s worth.
Both fighters also had to display tremendous heart throughout the entire eleven rounds as they traded hard punches for the entire eleven rounds contested.
And although this gives El Gallo his second win over Cuadras, the fight was competitive until the end and it just as easily could have been Cuadras having his hand raised at the end if his conditioning had been a little bit better.
Props goes to both Estrada and Cuadras for not only agreeing to face each other a second time, but also for giving the fans a great, throwback type fight with all the best things about boxing(technique, skill, strategy, ambition, determination, heart, sportsmanship) on display, and none of the bad things (poor sportsmanship, constant clinching, reluctance to engage).
Chocolatito also got a win by outclassing a young challenger, to set up a unification rematch against El Gallo for early 2021.
