Juan Francisco Estrada vs Dewayne Beamon


On Saturday, August 24 at the Centro de Usos Multiples in Hermosillo, Mexico, Juan Francisco Estrada makes a triumphant return to his home country to make the first defense of the WBC super flyweight title against unheralded Dewayne Beamon.

Returning to the ring for the first time since gaining sweet revenge over Srisaket Sor Rungvisai on April 26 to win the title, Estrada looks to put on a show in front of what will be a jam-packed Hermosillo crowd.

Juan Francisco Estrada

Age: 29
Location: Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico

Known as “Gallo”, Estrada (39-3, 26 KO’s) is one of the more complete and versatile boxers in the sport. A fighter who is effective fighting either on the front foot or while backing up, he can do whatever he has and needs to do to get the job done.

At his best, Gallo is a mid-range/distance fighter who prefers his opponent to come forward so he can display his outstanding boxing and counter-punching skills. However, when needed, he can stand in the pocket and land with effective punches to the head and body.

While not boasting one-punch power, the defending champ has more than enough power to gain opponent’s respect. In short, Estrada is the definition of an all-around fighter.

Keys to Victory

Establish distance, establish the jab and use his footwork to create angles and punching room. Beamon has an aggressive style and mindset, and rarely takes a backwards step. Estrada needs to keep his composure while using his boxing brain and greater skill-set to make this a boxing match.

Age: 34
Location: Greenville, North Carolina

This is the first world title opportunity for the fighter who calls himself “Mr. Stop Running”. The interesting thing about Beamon (16-1-1, 11 KO’s) is that even though he’s from the US, his upcoming fight will be his seventh consecutive fight in Mexico. Also, because he’s fought in Mexico so often recently, he will not be awed or overwhelmed fighting in Estrada’s home turf.

For those who have not seen Beamon fight, he is an aggressive, physically-strong forward-fighter. Possessing decent hand-speed and power, Beamon likes to use his physical strength and activity to wear his opponent down. He is a fighter who prides himself on his physical conditioning and tough guy mindset.

Keys to Victory

Make this fight a war of attrition. Beamon will not win a boxing contest against Estrada. He has to make this a fight. The challenger must find a way to effectively cut off the ring against Estrada, get inside and stay inside. Make this a rough, physical and ugly fight. That’s the best course of action for Beamon to win.

Prediction

Dewayne Beamon is the significant underdog,but will not be scared facing Juan Francisco Estrada in Mexico. Beamon will force Estrada to fight and will try to be all over him like bad breath. The problem is that Beamon’s style is very suited for what Estrada likes to do best, which is box and counter.

This fighter will go the distance and Beamon is tough and strong. In the end however, Estrada boast the better skills and overall speed. And the defending champ will be amped up fighting on home turf. Beamon will go the distance, but Juan Francisco Estrada wins this fight by comfortable decision.
