WBC orders Cuadras-Estrada fight for interim super flyweight title

WBC orders Cuadras-Estrada fight for interim super flyweight title
The World Council of Boxing (CMB), based in Mexico City, today authorized the fight between Mexicans Carlos Cuadras and Juan Francisco Estrada for the interim super flyweight title.
Through a statement, the president of the organization, the Mexican Mauricio Sulaimán, indicated that the WBC ordered the fight between the two highest-ranked contenders available because the current champion, the Thai Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, and the Nicaraguan Román ‘Chocolatito’ González are recovering from injuries after their March 18 bout in New York.
The agency received a request from the company Teiken Promotions “to order a direct rematch” between González and Rungvisai, who removed the title from the Nicaraguan by majority decision.
The WBC considered that “due to the great fight” and the “high public demand” to witness a rematch, it granted the request unanimously.
And he recalled that the winner had to face Cuadras, but “due to the medical suspension of both”, due to the cuts they suffered in the fight, he ordered the fight for the interim title.
The promoters of Cuadras and Estrada will agree to celebrate the fight.
Cuadras has a mark of 36 wins, 27 before the limit, one loss and one draw; and Estrada 35 wins, 25 on the fast track, and two losses. EFE
