Juan Estrada v Rommel Asenjo: Final press conference (photos)
The fact that his opponent is left-handed will be no problem, according to double world champion Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada, who will be defending his WBO and WBA flyweight titles against Filipino Rommel Asenjo in “The Battle of Zamná” which will be aired on Azteca 7, La Casa del Boxing on another great promotion by Zanfer and Maxboxing.
“The danger is Asenjo is a tough fighter who hits hard and is left-handed, so we have to be careful from the beginning of the fight, but it’s a style we know and have trained well to succeed,” said Sonoran Estrada.
The “Gallo” spoke during the press conference held on Thursday at the majestic Grand Museo del Mundo Maya, which was attended by representatives of local, national and foreign press that will cover the spectacular show next Saturday in the Polifórum Zamná.
The spectacular undercard on Saturday is led in the co-main event by local hero Miguel “Scorpion” Berchelt against the experienced René “Chirizo” Gonzalez in a fight over 12 rounds for the NABO super featherweight championship.
The “Scorpion” Berchelt (24-1, 21 KOs) seeks a future world title shot, but will have to give a good account against Gonzalez (31-7-1, 23 KO’s), a real old hardened Nicaraguan.
