The co-main event is nothing short of a blockbuster, with Seniesa “Super Bad” Estrada and Yokasta Valle throwing down the gauntlet in a fight that’s been brewing longer than your grandpa’s moonshine. With all four belts hanging in the balance, this 12-rounder is set to cement the victor’s place in the annals of minimumweight royalty, brought to you by the fine folks at Golden Boy and MarvNation Promotions.

And for those who like their fights as accessible as a cold beer on a hot day, this entire spectacle will be beaming live and direct into your living rooms, courtesy of ESPN+.

Let’s not forget the warriors who’ve tread this path before. Valdez, with his heart on his sleeve and fists of fury, has represented his homeland with distinction, only to stumble against the likes of Stevenson and Navarrete. Meanwhile, Wilson, our man from Down Under, has had his rollercoaster ride, knocking on victory’s door only to be greeted by the cold hand of defeat, but never one to back down from a challenge.

Then there’s the tale of two queens: Estrada, a force across three divisions, eyeing the crown of undisputed glory, and Valle, a warrior who’s weathered storms to claim her stake in the minimumweight throne.

And because no fight night is complete without a cast of hungry contenders and rising stars, the undercard is stacked with talent itching to make their mark, from knockout artist Raymond “Danger” Muratalla to heavyweight powerhouse Richard Torrez Jr., and not forgetting the young lion, Emiliano Fernando Vargas, ready to roar.

Seniesa Estrada

“For me, this fight carries a personal significance for numerous reasons. My competitive nature and my burning desire to claim the undisputed title fuel my drive. Ever since my early days with Golden Boy Promotions, I’ve been pushing for this fight. It’s the key to fulfilling my ambition of becoming undisputed in the ring, and my enthusiasm is at its peak. I’m eagerly awaiting March 29th, ready to seize the moment.”

“The fact that I was under Golden Boy Promotions is well-known. Valle has repeatedly claimed in interviews that I’ve been avoiding her, which couldn’t be further from the truth. The initiative to arrange this fight has always come from my end, right from the outset. It was me who brought her to the attention of Golden Boy Promotions. My intention has been clear from the beginning.”

Yokasta Valle

“This fight is a clash of champions, with no personal grudges involved. My eyes are set on becoming the undisputed champion; that’s my ultimate goal. Seniesa holds two titles that I aim for, not out of rivalry against her, but for the glory of the titles themselves. After years of dedication and climbing through the divisions, from 108 to 105 pounds, my dream of becoming undisputed is within reach. The anticipation is thrilling.”

“I envision every aspect of my fights, from the entrance music to the roar of the crowd. With hope, the next announcement I hear will be ‘And new undisputed champion, Yokasta Valle from Costa Rica,’ marking the pinnacle of my journey.”
