At 22 years old and without any international experience to speak of, Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada, known to wage war on any opponent he has faced, has been given the opportunity every fighter dreams of: To become a world champion.

That is the good news. The bad news is that he must face and defeat one of the best fighters in the world, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez. But he has the skills.

“Gallo” Estrada (22-1, 18KOs) will challenge the WBA light flyweight champion, the undefeated Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (33-0, 28KOs) of Nicaragua on Saturday, November 17th, at the Los Angeles Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California, in an event presented by Zanfer Promotions which will be broadcast in Mexico by Azteca 7and in the United States as well as the rest of the world by Wealth TV. In the main event, the WBO and WBA flyweight titles will be up for grabs when Hernan “Tyson” Marquez faces Brian “Hawaiian Punch” Viloria.

The current Campeon Azteca 2011 and former Mundo Hispano champion, Juan Francisco Estrada will be in one of those fights which will seem as a “mission impossible” but if won, can very well elevate his name and put in at the elite class of the division and give him the confidence to face and defeat anyone. The motivation is near him since in those very conditions Hernan “Tyson” Marquez captured the WBA flyweight title by defeating Luis “Nica” Concepcion in April of ’11.

Besides defeating “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, who has reigned supreme in the minimum weight and light flyweight divisions while being considered one of the best fighters in the lower weight classes, “Gallo” Estrada must defeat another rival before stepping into the ring: weight.

Never in twenty-three fights has Estrada ever fought at the lightweight limit of 108 lbs. He is a natural flyweight although much of his career has been campaigned at super flyweight.

Despite that, Estrada is hard at work in his training camp, working on a multi-layered plan designed by his nutrionist, chef, doctor, strength coach and trainer in which his body will shed the weight gradually without losing power, potency, resistance or speed. His conditioning work will consist with aerobic exercises and running on a track as well in the mountains. In the gym he will work on strategy with a number of sparring partners as well the assortment of heavy and speed bags and finishing up with a free weight session.

Following his work plan, “Gallo” Estrada is working with rhythm and in control of his weight. He has shined in his conditioning work as well in sparring which gives his team the confidence that he will climb into the ring without too much sacrifice and carrying the size advantage over “Chocolatito” Gonzalez.

Tickets are available for this spectacular double title fight event slated for Saturday, November 17th, at the Los Angeles Sports Arena at, and at the venue’s box office. Tickets range anywhere from $37.40 to $141.25 with fees included.
