In addition to the Estrada vs. Tsunami co-main event, scheduled to be shown on DAZN at 5:00 pm, Southern California’s boxing fans can view the Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez vs. Sullivan Barrera main event at 9:00 pm. This bout will conclude the total (13) bout card that was programmed to start at 12:30 pm. The double main event bouts are the main attraction of the Golden Boy Promotions package. It is truly a great idea for boxing fans to either come out to watch the “Friday Night” fight card at one of the most modern sports venues in the world, or to watch it in the total comfort of their home. Who knows, this could become the new trend for boxing to become yet another “by popular demand” choice of our mad, and ever sports-loving City of the Angels.

But, let’s return to our story about Estrada, now 28 years of age and an orthodox fighter who stands 5’2″ with a 63″ reach. She had an incredible amateur record on her journey to become a pro, and has a current pro record of (20-0 with 8 KOs/12 decisions).

But, for our followers who may not yet have heard of her, let’s take you back to where she  learned the art of boxing and the “Sweet Science.” At the age of eight, her father, Joeintroduced Seniesa to the sport when he took her to the Hollenbeck Youth Center’s boxing facility located in the East L.A. community of Boyle Heights.

With that, the very first seed was planted in her mind, body, and soul. Now some 20 years later, she is on the sharp rise of becoming a much sought-after contender for bigger, better, and higher paying fights now that she has been under the recent management and promotion of Oscar De La Hoya, and his Golden Boy Boxing Promotions. During her pro career, Estrada has held these three divisional titles: Mini Flyweight (aka Straw Weight), Light Flyweight and Flyweight.


In what was a sport dominated for many  generations by men, that has now ceased to be the reality. Once women’s boxing was accredited by all recognized professional world boxing entities, fighters’ careers and bout records took wing, and competitive contracts were  offered and made more appealing to many women interested in making their names known, and their marks paid attention to in today’s 21st century boxing world. In addition,with the oversight and authorization of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that officially added women’s boxing at the 2012 London Games, the “stepping-stones to success” were identified and concretized to be a real option for hundreds to thousands of women who desired to join the professional ranks of the sport.



East L.A. Sports Scene attended Estrada’s “Media Workout” that was FREE and Open to the Public at 12 noon, on Tuesday, July 6th, and came away with outstanding photo content captured by Erik Sarni, for East L.A. Sports Scene Productions, LLC. See our photo gallery for many more pictures of the event.
