World Boxing Association (WBA) minimumweight champion Seniesa Estrada is one of the best fighters in the world thanks to her skills in the ring but also because she is not afraid of challenges.
Changing divisions, looking for unification or making bouts with the best has always been the goal for her, and she has been acknowledge for that. Her next challenge will be the March 25 unification with German Tina Rupprecht, who holds the WBC belt.
Seniesa was 108-pound champion, then moved down to 105 and now wants a new belt, but she is not stopping there.
“I knew I could move down a division and give good fights there. Now as champion again, I want the undisputed title and then move up a division to go for the undisputed title of the light flyweight,” she said in an interview with journalist Erika Montoya for La Afición.
“I’m on the ideal path to become undisputed champion. Now I have a great opponent in front of me, a magnificent opponent, who has beaten great fighters. I know it will be a complicated fight, because Tina is small (1.53 meters) and she is used to being the small one, but I have a lot of experience and I will make her feel uncomfortable, more uncomfortable than ever,” she continued.
But Seniesa knows that she is fighting for something much bigger than herself and that is to exalt women’s boxing and give it the spaces it deserves, which gives her a great responsibility on behalf of all the female boxers in the world.
“It has been very difficult to continue opening these spaces for female boxers, I have been in boxing since I was 8 years old and I have seen how it has evolved, we have created many spaces and we are doing something huge, but there is still something missing and I am very proud to be able to contribute with my work to continue paving the way”, closed the champion.
