The third fight between Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez takes place at Pechanga Arena San Diego in San Diego, California on Saturday, March 5.

“The first two fights were very close and controversial which is why I will make sure I show up as ready as possible and I hope that Gonzalez does too, so that this time we leave no doubt as to who the best man is, and I can’t wait to show everybody that I am the better fighter. The first two were wars and this one will be no different which is why people shouldn’t miss it, it will be another guaranteed war.”
