Super Bad is an amazing two-divisional champion with a dynamic skillset. She put her skills on full display by defeating both, WBO light flyweight champion Tenkai Tsunami and WBA minimumweight champion Anabel Ortiz. Estrada likes to confuse her opponents by switching from orthodox to southpaw. She has a serious motor and good defense with even better counter-punching ability. Equally important, she can make adjustments which fans got to see on full display in her fight against Tsunami.

A LOOK AT THE CHALLENGER

La Imparable is a 36-year-old Guatemalan that is unknown to most of the boxing community. Santizo is the current holder of the WBC International minimumweight title, and she will be taking a huge step up in class in an attempt to dethrone the champion.

Fighting for the first time in the United States, Santizo has a tough task at hand going up against the much younger champion. In addition, she has never fought anyone remotely close to the same level as Seniesa Estrada.

LOOKING FOR UNDISPUTED

The two-division champion has made it clear she wants to become a two-division undisputed champion as well, in both the 105 and 108-pound divisions. Fighting at the AT&T Center in Texas, she will be defending the WBA minimumweight title and undoubtedly will be embraced by the cheers from the pro-Mexican crowd.

This title fight is the co-main event for the upcoming WBA light heavyweight title eliminator between former WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez and veteran Yunieski Gonzalez.

Fans can catch all the action on DAZN live on December 18.
