Estrada defeats Frenchman in Reno

02.11.03 - RENO, Nevada -- U.S. super heavyweight champion Jason Estrada defeated Medhi Aouiche, 8-4, in last Saturday’s (Nov. 1) USA-France international boxing dual in Reno, Nevada.

Fox Sports World will broadcast the videotaped USA-France boxing matches December 1. Team USA won seven of 11 matches against France.

Estrada, of Providence, is the first three-time U.S. Nationals and U.S. Challenge champion, as well as the only non-Cuban super heavyweight to capture a gold medal at the Pan-American Games.

“Aouiche is very tall and it was extremely hot in the ring,” Jason said. “But I thought it was a fairly easy victory. Now I can concentrate on getting ready for Povetkin.”

Estrada returns home tomorrow night (Monday) to train for his November 22 match against World Boxing Championship gold medal winner, Alexander Povetkin, in the USA-Russia dual in Biloxi, Mississippi.
