Seniesa Estrada Fighting on GGG Undercard
Pro Female Bout THIS Saturday!

(MAY 13) The action is goin' down THIS Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

Boxing fans are all abuzz about the Gennady Golovkin vs. Willie Monroe Jr. clash in the main event but there is also a featured undercard bout that is also getting some attention. Southland boxer Seniesa Estrada (3-0, 1 KO) will be entering the ring in her fourth fight as a pro THIS Saturday, May 16.

The flyweight sensation will be lacing up this weekend as she goes toe to toe with Carley Batey (4-4-2) on the undercard of this GGG-Monroe headliner with a co-main collision between Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzales and Edgar Sosa. This fight night is presented by K2 Promotions and GGG Promotions in association with Banner Promotions and will air on HBO.

Many local fans flocked to buy their tickets this week to see this local girl lace up and go for her fourth win as a professional boxer. After first turning pro in 2011, getting matchups has not been easy for the East L.A. prizefighter who won numerous amateur titles and championships. Besides Seniesa's likability factor and fan base, the fact that this female match is making news is also due in part to the lack of women's boxing on major network cards.

But come Saturday night, it will be two females lacing up at the Forum. While this female fight is on the non-televised portion of the night, it is a step forward in having women's boxing featured on mainstream events. The pair will square off in six two-minute rounds and hopefully prove to the crowd that the girls in the fight game deserve more time in the spotlight. The weight will be at 116 and Estrada will be gunning for a victory in front of a hometown crowd who will be cheering her name.

I've known the 22-year-old boxing star since she was a young girl. I caught several of her amateur bouts in California and Kansas City while she made a name for herself in the elite circuit (winning 97 bouts as an amateur).

And if you think she's just a pretty face, she wants to prove you wrong. Yes, she may be petite at just a couple inches over five feet tall. And yes, her nails are brightly colored in the latest beauty trends. And yes, just like most girls in their 20s, she takes time to style her hair and make sure she looks on point. But you would be wrong to think she doesn't spend an extraordinary amount training hard in the gym. TRAIN HARD, FIGHT HARD. Don't let this cutie pie fool you, she's as tough as they come and can compete with any gym rat, male or female.

I caught up with Seniesa today as her showdown is now less than 72 hours away. The slick boxer (who has trainer Dean Campos and her father Joe Estrada in her corner) is really excited and proud to be on this card.

"I'm so excited to be fighting at home where all my family, friends and supporters can attend," she says. "I am ready and focused and can't wait to display my skills."

And on May 16, she hopes to bring new fans to the world of women's boxing.

"I'm looking forward to giving the crowd a great performance and something that they've never seen in women's boxing," she tells me. "I'm thankful to be fighting on such a great card and it's going to be a great night of boxing in Los Angeles."

The rush for tickets this week has remained strong and Team Estrada will be represented at the fabulous Forum (where the famed Los Angeles Lakers used to play).

The young puncher looks forward to making her presence known in the pro game. Women's boxing may be on the back burner in this male-dominated sport but with each step forward, Estrada will continue to strive for more in her career. And she is appreciative of those who have believed in her talent and strength.

Seniesa acknowledges: "I'd like to thank Roy Englebrecht, K2 Promotions, Banner Promotions and my sponsor Oscar A. Sanchez for making everything possible and supporting me every step of the way!"

She has been boxing since she the tender age of 8 and her journey in the sweet science continues. Outside the ropes, she is easygoing with a frequent smile and friendly personality. Inside the four corners, she is fierce with a solid game face going on. It is this duality that intrigues her fans and supporters. And the tiny dynamo hopes to draw new boxing fans as she fights on this weekend's showcase.

If you're near the City of Angels this Saturday night, be sure to come to the Forum to watch Seniesa Estrada as her rise to the top continues!
