Bam Rodriguez vs. Estrada

Phoenix, Arizona, is gearing up for an explosive encounter in the boxing world as Juan Francisco Estrada is set to defend his WBC and Ring Magazine World Super-Flyweight belts against Jesse Rodriguez. This showdown is scheduled for a lively Saturday night on June 29 at the Footprint Center, live on DAZN.

Estrada, with a formidable record of 44-3 and 28 KOs, is stepping back into the ring to defend his title against Rodriguez, riding high from his slim victory over Roman Gonzalez in their thrilling third bout last December. That win, a majority decision, not only electrified fans but also nudged Estrada ahead in their epic saga, now leading 2-1.

Facing him is the young lion, Rodriguez, a fresh force in boxing who has already dethroned two Super-Flyweight kings in his unblemished 19-0 run, including 12 knockouts. His previous conquest over Sunny Edwards by unification at Flyweight was nothing short of spectacular. Now, at the tender age of 24, Rodriguez is set to enhance his burgeoning legacy by aiming for a title he first clinched against Carlos Cuadras in February 2022, ironically at the same venue.

This battle isn’t merely a contest; it’s a fiesta for Mexican sports lovers in Phoenix, especially with the national soccer team playing Ecuador in Copa America the very next day. The Estrada-Rodriguez face-off promises to be a standout event, pitting two top contenders in an unforgettable clash.

Estrada, buzzing with anticipation, is aware of the challenge Rodriguez poses but is keen to assert his supremacy in the boxing ring once more. Rodriguez, on his part, is all set to dazzle with a stellar performance, eyeing the world title against a revered adversary like Estrada.

Eddie Hearn, the promoter, is already hyping up the bout, assuring that when fighters of such high caliber collide, the excitement is a given. With numerous narratives at play, this encounter is highly anticipated by both the fans and the fighters.

Alfie Sharman of DAZN also weighed in, underlining the importance of this matchup in their calendar and applauding Rodriguez’s gutsy attitude towards taking on the elite in the ring.
