Junior flyweight Seniesa “Superbad” Estrada will return to action in the main event of the June 13 edition of Golden Boy DAZN Thursday Night Fights, defending her WBC “silver” 108-pound title against an opponent to be named from Hollywood’s Avalon.

“I’m excited fighting at home again,” said Estrada. ”My last two fights were in Mexico, so it’s cool to be fighting in front of my fans, friends and family who will be coming out to support me as I defend my WBC silver junior flyweight title.

“I think this will be the last time I defend it before I challenge for a world title. I have high hopes that we can sell this place out because I know my fans have been waiting for me to fight in Los Angeles. I expect it to be a great event!”

Despite the fact that there are a total of 107 ranked fighters in the women’s 108-pound division on BoxRec, the WBC have a convoluted title situation. Estrada holds the “silver” belt, while Mexico’s Yesenia Gomez (15-5-3, 6 KO) has the full title, and another Mexican fighter, Kenia Enriquez (21-1, 9 KO), has the interim title.

The co-feature will be a super bantamweight fight between Azat Hovhannisyan (16-3, 13 KO) and Glenn Porras (32-8, 20 KO) set for 10 rounds.

Also featured on the card: Carlos Caraballo (11-0, 11 KO), Christian Gonzalez (19-3, 15 KO), David Mijares (7-0, 3 KO), Jose Vargas (5-0, 4 KO), and Pat Manuel (1-0, 0 KO), all with opponents named soon, or at least by fight week in a month.
