Everything You Need To Know About Estrada Vs 'Chocolatito' III

How to watch the super flyweight showdown, including what channel and UK start time
08:00, 29 Nov 2022

Not all trilogies are created equal. But a rivalry poised at one win apiece, with each previous meeting being a genuine Fight of the Year contender? That’s a proper reason for a third bout. Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez and Francisco Estrada’s trilogy fight this weekend carries all the hallmarks of a potential classic.

Gonzalez won their eye-watering first meeting in 2012, retaining the WBA flyweight belt in an absolute nailbiter. It was nine years until their next clash, when Estrada returned the favour with a split decision win to unify the WBA, WBC and The Ring super flyweight titles. Now they go again for the latter pair of straps.

This is about more than championships though. After two all-time classics, this third meeting will see the winner go down in history for clinching one of boxing’s great trilogies. If the bout is even half as good as the others they have shared, fans are in for a treat.

Here’s everything you need to know about the best fight 2022 has left to offer.
