Cecilia Braekhus v Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes

With his next fight set for Aug. 24 on DAZN, WBC super flyweight titleholder Juan Francisco Estrada has officially signed a deal with Matchroom Boxing and Zanfer Promotions.

Estrada (39-3, 26 KO) won the WBC 115-pound belt on April 26 on DAZN, beating Srisaket Sor Rungvisai in a main event rematch from Inglewood, California. It was a good fight and one where Estrada’s skills were on display, as he claimed his spot at the top of the super flyweight division.

“I’m very excited to be fighting again on DAZN where I won the WBC title,” said Estrada. “I look forward to defending my title for Mexico and for all my fans and hopefully I can soon unify titles with the other champions of the division.

“I’m very motivated being champion once again and I’m ready to show that I’m a champion to be reckoned with.”

“I’m delighted to welcome pound-for-pound star Juan Estrada to the team,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “We have been working closely with Zanfer over the last year and this is an exciting addition to DAZN.

“Estrada was outstanding in capturing the WBC and Ring Magazine belts in LA in April and looks now to move on and unify the division. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
