Estrada concluded his preparation at the Caballero Team gym in Hermosillo, Sonora.
The contest is a long-awaited rematch, which comes more than eight years after the first spectacular.
In November 2012, “Chocolatito” defeated “Gallo” by unanimous decision. At the time, the Nicaraguan, who had already been a world minimumweight champion, was making his sixth title defense, and Estrada, who was a rising prospect and had never fought at light flyweight. Nevertheless, he offered a highly contested fight.
Each went their own way. Estrada was already a flyweight world champion and is currently a Super Flyweight champion, and González has already won titles in these divisions, to be the first boxer in Nicaraguan history to be world champion in four categories.
El “Gallo” will come to this contest after the brilliant slugfest war on October 23, in which he got off the canvas in the third round, to knock out Carlos Cuadras in the eleventh, in Mexico City. And in the same show, “Chocolatito” defeated Mexican Israel González by unanimous decision to retain his title for the first time.
