Source: Estrada to defend title against Villarino


Seniesa Estrada will defend her WBA strawweight title against Jazmin Gala Villarino in a co-feature bout on Nov. 12, the first fight of her contract with Top Rank, a source told ESPN on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old Estrada (22-0, 9 KO) will be fighting for the first time in 2022. She last fought on Dec. 18, 2021, beating Maria Micheo Santizo by knockout in the fourth round in San Antonio.

This will be the second defense of her WBA belt after winning it from Anabel Ortiz in March 2021 by unanimous decision and then defending it against Santizo in December.

Villarino (6-1-2, 1 KO), from Argentina, has not lost since her debut in 2016 and beat Judith Vivanco by unanimous decision in her last fight in March. This will be the 32-year-old Villarino’s debut in the United States. The exact location for the fight has not been announced.

Having fought the majority of her career in her native Argentina, her past two fights have taken place in Colombia and Mexico.
