Professional boxing returns to the State of Kansas on Friday as undefeated lightweight Brandon Rios (22-0-1, 16 KOs) takes on Lorenzo Estrada (3-15-1) in what looks like a mismatch on paper. However, if you look closely at the record of Estrada, it tells a different story. In Estrada’s last bout, he went the distance with Frankie Archuleta 25-7-1 and as the underdog in a 2008 bout Estrada upset Willie Villanueva who was 9-0 at the time. In addition, one of Estrada’s three wins was a hard fought 12 round decision over tough Texan Jacobo Gomez. In the co-main event, light-middleweight Bernardo Guereca (15-8-1) of El Paso, Texas, takes on New Mexico’s Joseph Gomez (16-2-1). The show takes place at the Garden City Convention Center and is promoted by Robert Gonzalez & Bad Boyz Boxing.
