Seniesa Estrada, Marlén Esparza headed on a collision course

No one can recall a promotional company headlining back to back women’s fights on consecutive cards, as Goldenboy Promotions sets up the scene for the most anticipated women’s bout, arguably, since Clarissa Shields defeated Tori Nelson in January.

Estrada contra Esparza is beginning to build a head of steam for what might be a campaign of fights, question is… When is the first one?

Early in their careers, each woman has shown spurts of showmanship, celebrity and a bit of glory — all necessary to be great.

Esparza is coming off here quick and powerful, third round TKO destruction of Laetiza Campana.

Estrada pointed at, later boasted, “Who do I want? Did you see me point at her after I won? I want Seniesa Estrada.”

In the March 16 edition of LA Fight Club, “Super Bad” fought in front of her hometown and Goldenboy Promotions debut and showed precision shots, Roy Jones Jr-type of bobs and weaves, for a unanimous decision against Sonia Osorio.

On paper we see a balance of experience. Estrada has 63 pro-rounds under her belt in comparison to Houston- native Esparza, who possesses only 23 Rounds, but is three-years the elder to Los Angeles product Estrada.

As the old saying goes, “Styles make make fights.”

We’ll see if the power shots and aggression can out wit precise footwork.

It will be the most anticipated fight, possibly, in women’s boxing history.
