Rejuvenated and more focused than ever following a six month break from the ring, Miami favorite “King” David Estrada will return to the ring on Wednesday, April 23rd to take on hard hitting Colombian Alexander Pacheco Quiroz at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood to resume his quest for the world welterweight title on the highly-anticipated “KNOCKOUT KINGS” card.
“David is never in a bad fight and that has made him one of Florida’s most popular fighters,” said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Seminole Warriors Boxing. “From everything I’ve heard, he has looked better than ever in the gym in Puerto Rico, and we’re looking forward to what should be a great performance on April 23rd.”
A hard-nosed warrior who has been in with the best the welterweight division has to offer, including Shane Mosley, Kermit Cintron, and Andre Berto, Estrada (21-4, 12 KOs) has never backed down from any challenge between the ropes. Winner of three of his last four bouts, the 29-year old from Miami has been thriving under the tutelage of new trainer Evangelista Cotto in Puerto Rico, and on April 23rd, he is eager to show his loyal fans the new additions he has made to his game in the last six months.
Alexander Pacheco Quiroz (14-5-1, 12 KOs) is a knockout artist from Colombia who operates on a philosophy of going for broke in every fight, with the chips falling where they may. Fresh off a first round TKO of Edwin Padilla last November, his fifth win to end in two rounds or less, Quiroz is looking to spoil Estrada’s homecoming with one punch from his fists.
“THE KNOCKOUT KINGS”, which is headlined by the 12 round IBF junior welterweight title elimination bout between Juan Urango and Carlos Wilfredo Vilches, is presented by Seminole Warriors Boxing. Doors open at 6:30pm and the first bell rings at 7:30pm. ESPN2’s Wednesday Night Fights broadcast begins at 9pm ET / 6pm PT.
In the co-feature, middleweight sensation “Mean” Joe Greene returns to Hard Rock Live to take on opponent Marlon Thomas and take part in a 10 round contest.
Tickets for “THE KNOCKOUT KINGS”, priced at $150, $100, $50 and $25, are on sale now, and may be purchased at the Hard Rock Live Box Office or TicketMaster.com.
