This East LA boxer aims to become a three-division world champion

Seniesa Estrada has already defied expectations to become a world champion in two divisions. Now debuting with Top Rank, she's chasing her third.

Seniesa ”Superbad” Estrada (22-0-0) is a thirty-year-old Mexican-American boxer from East Los Angeles, the same area that brought us Oscar De La Hoya. She currently holds world championship belts in two different divisions, Junior Flyweight & Minimumweight. 

While her last fight came just under a year ago in December 2021, her rise up the ranks and to the world stage in women’s boxing hasn’t gone unnoticed. Her past year included wins over Anabel Ortiz, Tenkai Tsunami, and Maria Santizo. In total, she has fought 116 rounds of professional boxing and remains undefeated.

She was introduced to boxing at age six by her father, who had experience boxing in the gym, the streets, and in prison. They would often watch televised matches together, but when she expressed interest in boxing herself, he always told her it was for boys. By age seven she knew she wanted to be a world champion and became insistent. Her father eventually became her coach. 

Estrada is close to fulfilling her promise

She debuted professionally in 2011 at eighteen years of age against Maria Ruiz, and in 2018 signed a contract with Oscar De La Hoya’s promotion company Golden Boy Promotions. Next up for the reigning two-division world champ is making her debut with Top Rank to defend her WBA minimumweight world title against Jazmin Gala Villarino after signing a multi-year contract with them this past summer.  

Estrada has often told the press that her goals have always been to be one of the best women to fight, to become a three-division world champion, and to inspire girls who come from a similar background as her. It looks like she’s coming close to being able to check all of those goals off her list. Estrada has been at the forefront of the meteoric rise of women’s boxing over the past decade, and with two divisions locked up (and a third in her crosshairs), her next chapter is about to be written.
