    All them lads would beat him. I still rate Ancajas very highly. It’s between him and Estrada for top dog in that division imo.

    70% of Roman Gonzalez is still 100% too much for Kal Yafai. Roman wins this handily.

    Ancajas is brilliant, I'd love to see him in with Charlie Edwards, it would be like the Conlan fight only more brutal and more of a schooling

    What was the story with Estrada? I found this quote from Yafai:

    “I wanted the biggest possible fight available and after the Juan Francisco Estrada unification fell through, I had the opportunity to fight Chocolatito, the former pound for pound king!”

    They were lined up to fight each other, on next week's Miami card I believe, but Estrada pulled out with an injury.

    Not sure it was every finalised or anything but I think they had 'talks' or something equally ambiguous

    I really think yafai can take this
    Similar age the two
    But yafai is just fresher less worn not a given though
    Chocalito will capitalize on any waekness he sees in yafai
    Will have to be a pitch perfect display from the brummie

    Looks like they legit tried to get the Estrada fight, but pursued Chocolatito when that fell through rather than Moloney's mando...

    It says the fight fell through because of that, but I'm still unsure about how far they would have gone. That is purely on my Matchroom cynicism though

    I think DAZN would have liked to stage that fight, especially if they could get additional Estrada appearances

    No doubt, Estrada is a top boxer. He'd have ****ing schooled Yafai
