Giovani Segura

El Gallo Successfully Defends Title!

Juan “El Gallo” Estrada successfully defended his WBO Flyweight and WBA Super World Flyweight Titles on Saturday night, September 6, in a resounding victory against Giovani Segura, “The Aztec Warrior”. The fight took place at the Arena Cuidad de Mexico, with an estimated 10,000 spectators in attendance. Fans and friends watched in breathless anticipation as Estrada (27-2-20KOs) dominated the ex-champion Giovani Segura (32-5-1, 28 KOs) during the entire fight. It was joyful for Estrada but heart-breaking for the Aztec Warrior as the 11th round brought an end to this grueling match, giving Estrada an impressive victory against a very formidable opponent and handing Segura the second loss in his entire career by way of TKO—bringing the Aztec Warrior’s three-win streak to an end, and securing El Gallo’s claim as the reigning best boxer in the lower weight division.
