Juan Francisco Estrada’s return fight is official, as he will face Argi Cortes on Saturday, Sept. 3, headlining a DAZN-broadcast event from Hermosillo, Mexico. ‘El Gallo’ welcomes Cortes to his hometown and the same arena he stopped Dewayne Beamon in August 2019, and the Hermosillo hero will want to put on another show for his fans. Argi Cortes lands the biggest fight of his career in his 28th pro outing, with the Mexico City man aiming to upset his fellow countryman and become a household name overnight. This is definitely going to be an exciting encounter not only for all the Mexican boxing fans out there, but for everyone who likes to watch exciting fights!
The 32-year-old Estrada will be a huge favorite over Cortes. The 27-year-old’s two losses came in his third and fourth fights back in 2014-15, and he’s won 11 straight at the moment, but they’ve all been against marginal opposition, and Estrada is a massive step up for him. “It’s great to be back and I’m very excited that I’ll get to fight in front of all the Sonoran fans and in front of my growing family,” said Estrada. “Whenever two Mexicans go at it you can always expect a war and this fight against Cortes will be another great Mexican battle in Hermosillo.”
Estrada made news last week after the WBA stripped him of his world title belt for failing to face secondary world titleholder Joshua Franco in a timely manner. Franco remains the only titleholder of the sanctioning body. The 32-year-old has won his last six fights since losing by majority decision to then-WBC world junior bantamweight title holder Srisaket Sor Rungvisai. Cortes, who resides in Mexico City, will take a significant step up in opposition when he faces Estrada. In his last bout on May 28, Cortes defeated Rogelio Romero Garcia by unanimous decision.
