Rising Californian Seniesa Estrada could be on the verge of her first true world title shot. Asian Boxing reports that “Super Bad” will challenge WBO minimumweight queen Etsuko Tada as part of Showtime’s Feburary 13th Joseph Diaz Jr.-Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov card.

Estrada (19-0, 8 KO) upset Olympian Marlen Esparza for the interim WBA flyweight title back in 2019, weighing in a full two pounds under the division limit in the process. Her 2020 campaign was brief but memorable, as she dispatched the hapless Miranda Adkins in a viral seven-second wipeout.

The 39-year-old Tada (20-3-3, 7 KO), BoxRec’s #1 woman at 105 pounds, figures to be a stiffer challenge. She’d previously held the WBA and IBF titles at different points, and last month, she secured the WBO belt with a vicious one-punch KO of former atomweight champ Ayaka Miyao.

Should this come to fruition, it would be the card’s third title fight, joining the main event and the excellent co-feature between Patrick Teixeira and Brian Castano.
