Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez vs. Juan Francisco Estrada 2: Date, fight time, odds, TV channel and ...

What has all the makings to be an early candidate for "Fight of the Year" takes place on Saturday night from the American Airlines Center in Dallas when Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez battles Juan Francisco Estrada for the second time in a super flyweight title unification bout. The entire fight card can be seen on DAZN in over 200 countries worldwide. The co-main event features Jessica McCaskill meeting Cecilia Braekhus in a rematch for the undisputed women's welterweight championship.

The pair met in November 2012, with Gonzalez winning by unanimous decision to retain the WBA junior flyweight title. Since then, Gonzalez and Estrada have taken different paths to get to this point.

After the first fight, Gonzalez went on to win 12 consecutive contests to become the top pound-for-pound fighter in the sport to his record to 46-0. Then Gonzalez ran into Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, who ended up beating 'Chocolatito' in back-to-back fights. Gonzalez was being written off and considered past his peak. The native of Nicaragua dug deep down and has won four straight fights, which includes winning the WBA (super) super flyweight belt from Kal Yafai via ninth-round TKO in February 2019. Gonzalez last competed in October, beating Israel Gonzalez via unanimous decision.

Since losing to Gonzalez, Estrada's won 15 of 16 fights, with the only setback coming to Sor Rungvisai via majority decision in February 2018. Two fights later, Estrada exacted revenge and beat Sor Rungvisai in April 2019 to win the WBC title. Estrada fought on the same card as Gonzalez, but in the headlining position, and defeated Carlos Cuadras via 11th-round TKO to defend the belt for the second time. 

The winner can lay the claim to being the best super flyweight fighter in the world. 

Can Gonzalez climb back to the top of the mountain? Or does Estrada continue to cement his legacy?
