(MAY 20)  During Monday's Tim Bradley vs. Jessie Vargas kickoff press conference held at the Conga Room in Los Angeles, Vargas' trainer Roy Jones Jr. took his turn at the mic to share his thoughts about the upcoming Bradley-Vargas fight. But in an impromptu moment, Roy went off script a bit to tell us about a young pro fighter he was very impressed with.

The WBU cruiserweight champ and ring veteran told the audience about 22-year-old Seniesa Estrada, who had just fought Saturday night on the Gennady Golovkin-Willie Monroe Jr. card which aired live on HBO (with Jones as a commentator). While Seniesa's bout with Carly Batey was on the non-televised portion of the show, Jones said everyone should see this girl fight. He asked Estrada to stand up, telling the crowd at the presser: "You have to see this girl. She can fight!"

In her match at the Forum, Seniesa won by unanimous decision after trading punches and matching wits with Batey in six two-minute rounds. And just two days after her fight, she shares her thoughts with me about meeting one of her longtime idols in Jones Jr., the impact of this spur-of-the-moment shout out to her, and why more fans should watch female fights.

Having this verbal shout out from the ring legend was a moment Estrada will never forget. Women's boxing is always on the back burner in the sport and the East L.A. puncher says she was surprised and truly honored to have Roy Jones Jr. giving her such a boost of support.

Jones Jr. told Seniesa that she thinks better than male boxers, praised her job at cutting off the ring and finished by saying he was proud of her.

She is buoyed by this burst of compliments brought forth by Roy. Estrada, a former amateur star, now looks to have a busy year and showing a strong stance in the pro fight game.

"I can box; I can bang," she says during our chat. Seniesa knocked Batey down in Round 5 of their clash.

She is a fresh face in boxing and with Saturday's victory, Estrada is hoping to continue to draw more fight fans into watching women's boxing.

"If anyone can do it, she can," nodded Roy Jones Jr. while on stage.

 

Check out my in-depth interview with the undefeated Seniesa Estrada as she reveals her thoughts on hearing Roy Jones Jr. vouch for her, what her return to the ring was like and why you should follow her rising career!
