Boxing Preview: Jesse Rodriguez (19-0-0, 12 KOs) vs Juan Francisco Estrada (44-3-0, 28 KOs)

In the heat of Phoenix, Jesse Rodriguez is gearing up to throw down with Juan Francisco Estrada in what’s being billed as more than just a fight—it’s a chance to shut up some longstanding criticism. This clash for the WBC World and Ring Magazine Super-Flyweight titles is set to light up the Footprint Center this Saturday, June 29, streaming to the masses live on DAZN .

While Rodriguez is quick to say it’s nothing personal, it’s clear there’s more riding on this than just belts. After Estrada threw shade at Rodriguez’s previous victories, ‘Bam’ is not just fighting for glory but for respect—and he’s ready to do it by knockout or decision, whatever it takes.

Rodriguez, who first snagged the WBC title back in 2022 by schooling Carlos Cuadras, has been on a tear, defending his title with a spectacular stoppage of Srisaket Sor Rungvisai in his hometown of San Antonio. Now, he’s setting his sights on Estrada, aiming to cross another name off his list and take one step closer to undisputed status at 115lbs.

Estrada, with a record adorned with big names like Cuadras, Rungvisai, and Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez, is no walkover. But Rodriguez, fueled by past comments and a burning desire to prove himself, is more motivated than ever. “This isn’t just about the belts,” Rodriguez states, “It’s about proving to Estrada, to everyone, that I am the real deal.”

As if the stakes weren’t high enough, Rodriguez is already eyeing the future, hinting at a possible rematch with Estrada before chasing down the remaining belts in the division. “Holding all the belts in the ring is the dream,” he confesses, revealing his ambition to join the ranks of the undisputed.

The event promises more than just the headline grabber. It’s a full card of can’t-miss action featuring former world champions and rising stars, all set to prove their mettle in Phoenix. From Sunny Edwards facing Adrian Curiel to the unbeaten Arturo Cardenas and Danny Barrios duking it out for the WBC Continental Americas Super-Bantamweight title, there’s no shortage of drama.
