Hear More About Fury And Estrada Wins
Off the weekend, we got our “Fight Freaks Unite Recap” podcast up covering Tyson Fury’s one-sided WBC heavyweight championship defense against Derek Chisora in London in their trilogy bout and the rubber match between junior bantamweight champion Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez Saturday night from Arizona.
Dan Rafael has more on what we discussed on this episode:
Fury’s absolutely one-sided 10th-round destruction of Chisora in a disgraceful and grotesque fight that should never have been made in the first place. Yeah, I went off hard, especially on Chisora’s corner, which didn’t seem to care if their man lived or died. That said, my thoughts on the warrior spirit of Chisora, Fury’s post-fight confrontation with Oleksandr Usyk, who is the likely next opponent for the undisputed title, and the possibility Fury may first need surgery on the right elbow injury he said he had after the bout.
Daniel Dubois’ disappointing performance in a third-round knockout of Kevin Lerena to retain his secondary heavyweight belt. But what about the three knockdowns Dubois suffered in the first round, in part due to an apparent leg injury, and his shaky stoppage win? What’s that say about his future? How about the first-round bell sounding with 10 seconds left, which was huge for the damaged Dubois? And how about the referee’s weak stoppage after the bell had ended the round?
The train wreck ESPN production of Dubois-Lerena, that included cutting away from the end of the first round to an interview with Fury in the dressing room that had no audio but did have audio of Dubois’ corner playing instead, the lack of any replays of the first-round knockdowns and no recognition of the leg injury or early end of the first round.

The excellent trilogy fight between Estrada and Chocolatito, but who really deserved the victory and what might be next for both, including the prospect of a fourth fight?
My thoughts the undercard performances of WBC flyweight titlist Julio Cesar Martinez, former flyweight titlist Cristofer Rosales’ upset of Joselito Velazquez in a very good fight as well as a trio of prospects who looked good in wins: super middleweight Diego Pacheco, lightweight Marc Castro and middleweight Austin Williams.
Some news of the week, including a date change for the Josh Taylor-Jack Catterall junior welterweight title rematch and the date that is now penciled in for the super middleweight clash between Caleb Plant and David Benavidez, which looks like it will be one of an overload of PBC pay-per-views in the works for the first part of 2023.
