A Little Man Fight~Wisaksil Wangek vs Juan Francisco Estrada

Wisaksil Wangek, 44-4-1, 40 KO is the hottest little guy in boxing today after twice manhandling Ring P4P #1, Roman Choco Gonzalez. He defends his well earned WBC Superflyweight title against onetime Gonzalez rival, Juan Francisco Estrada36-2-0, 25 KO the Forum in Inglewood, California this Saturday, February 24th.

This is as top flight boxing match as can be made today with a natural, ever developing Thai/Mexican rivalry on display. Neither one had been picked to be the touted savior of their tiny divisions, but they are as good as most any top fighter in boxing today, so in a sport that too often sees one or both of the best in their divisions avoiding fights with each other, that they make a fan friendly fight and then step into the ring to actually fight according to established rules of boxing becomes like manna falling from the heavens above for the starving fight fan populace, a refreshing no boxing stinkers allowed zone…

Estrada has never been knocked out, but then again neither had Choco before Wangek cleaned his clock. He has 40 KOs, most all against Thai and other Asian type journey men, but has really stepped up his game in his last three fights in America to become #1 in his division and upsetting all the odds and expectations stacked against him against the top guys. He’s 31 years of age, and so is nearing the end of traditional prime years for these tiny divisions, but thus far has proven invulnerable in these latter few years.

I had to make a pick in my predictor league, so I chose the better, more compelling style shown of late by Wangek. Estrada as accomplished and respected as he is, has thus far been just short of the championship form shown by Wangek…Enjoy…
