Fight Preview


By Lee Thorton – Juan Francisco Estrada vs Felipe Orucuta is a battle of two very talented Mexican boxers on the Superfly 3 card featured on HBO.

Estrada comes into this fight, bringing his elite skill level which consists of Counterpunching, hand speed and accurate blows to the head and body. Having a style similar to Juan Manuel Marquez, Estrada is a pleasure to watch box.

His opponent Felipe Orucuta has a record of 36-4 with 30 knockouts.  Watching some film on Orucuta, you see a large number of lead uppercuts, a variety of punches and an unpredictable style which consists of aggression and some boxing off his back foot.

I believe somehow this fight between two Mexican’s has flown under the radar. I believe boxing fans will get skills and a slugfest at times.

Ultimately I believe Estrada will win this fight with his superior skill set. If I was making a list of the top 5 most underrated boxers currently Estrada would place highly.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
