Seniesa Estrada wants world titles in four weight classes, goes for second on July 9

“Super Bad” challenges for a 108 lb title four months after winning a 105 lb belt.

Sye Williams/Golden Boy

Seniesa Estrada just won her first world title on Marc. 20 in Texas, beating Anabel Ortiz to take the WBA 105 lb title, and now is set to chase a second belt, as she challenges Tenkai Tsunami for the WBO 108 lb title on July 9 in Los Angeles.

Estrada (20-0, 8 KO) says she feels comfortable at 105, 108, and 112 — where she beat rival Marlen Esparza in 2019 — and believes she’ll even be able to win world titles up at 115 lbs.

But she’s not downplaying Tsunami (28-12-1, 16 KO), a 36-year-old Japanese veteran who has held or fought for world titles at 108, 112, 115, and 118.

“Tenkai Tsunami is a tough fighter. She has fought in different weight classes, and she has even gone as high as bantamweight,” Estrada said. “Although she has some losses, they’ve been against legit champions. She has never been stopped either. That shows that she always goes in there to win and to fight.

“By fighting smart and sticking to my game plan, I will be successful. I think that if all goes as planned, I could even stop her.”

Tsunami-Estrada will be part of Golden Boy’s July 9 card featuring Zurdo Ramirez vs Sullivan Barrera and Joseph Diaz Jr vs Javier Fortuna, streaming live on DAZN.
