Seniesa dominated Rupprecht and became unified champion

Seniesa Estrada became unified minimumweight champion by defeating Tina Rupprecht this Saturday night. The American won a unanimous decision at the Save Mart Arena in Fresno, California.

The World Boxing Association (WBA) champion got 100-90 scorecards from all three judges to win the WBA crown from the German and now owns both belts.

Estrada showed her usual boxing with a lot of volume, combinations to the body and face, making a great fight that helped her to take all the rounds and remain one of the best pound-for-pound fighters of today.

“Super Bad” not only defeated a champion with more than five years of experience, but she did it comfortably despite all the pressure that Rupprecht put on her and all the grit she brought to Europe for her first presentation in the United States.

Estrada now has 24 wins, 9 of them by knockout, while Rupprecht lost her undefeated record and now has 12 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw and 3 knockouts.
