Seniesa Estrada Beat Her Opponent In Sevens Seconds In One Of Boxing's Biggest Mismatches
Fans were left unhappy on Friday night as Seniesa Estrada took her professional record to 19-0 in under 10 seconds, in one of the biggest mismatches in sport history.
The WBC silver flyweight champion was defending her belt against Miranda Adkins at the Fantasy Springs Casino in California.
The champ had 18 wins to her name coming into the fight whereas the challenger, a 42-year-old, had just a 5-0 record and all at local level.
Perhaps unsurprisingly the fight lasted just seven seconds and you can see just by how tentative Adkins is coming out of her corner that this was a huge mismatch.
After the brutal knockout the boxing world took to social media as they were outraged at what they had just watched.
So Miranda Adkins is from KS near me.. I looked up her career.. she is 42 yrs, had only 5 fights, ALL WERE LOCAL KANSAS FIGHTS, & somehow she was in the ring to fight Seniesa Estrada for the WBC belt who is 18-0?? This is corrupt af, promoters should be banned #DAZN #Boxing smh https://t.co/GeN92qmTq7- Gnome Army (@ryan_itsyaboi) July 25, 2020
That was hard to watch, I'm glad Miranda Adkins seems OK but she didn't know how to defend herself the moment the bell rang. Way over her head against a killer like Seniesa Estrada- Ryan Songalia (@ryansongalia) July 25, 2020
Legit lost all the respect i had for Seniesa Estrada after that fight.- Chris:flag_pe::flag_mx: (@navarrofit) July 25, 2020
Well, that wasn't fair at all. Seniesa Estrada runs out of her corner, throws five punches and finishes Miranda Atkins in a matter of seconds. #OrtizVargas- Andreas Hale (@AndreasHale) July 25, 2020
Yeah, she clearly had little to no skill. They (The Promotion) should be ashamed of themselves for this.- marco smith II (@rare_class) July 25, 2020
Boxing promoters and match makers are responsible for this crime. Boxing shows are about putting in a show vs two fighters of equal skills to put on a show. This is a typical boxing matchup where the promoter showcases his boxer by doing this to a lesser opponent. That's a crime.- Ledbetter (@ledbetter2323) July 25, 2020
Travesty!!! Embarrassing to the sport.- SoundOff316 (@SoundOff316) July 25, 2020
That's not impressive. Her opponent didn't even look like she knew where she was at.
Had a world champion fighting what looked like a soccer mom
hard to believe Goldenboy's chief matchmaker Robert Diaz had anything to do with it, he is IMO one of the sports best. Whoever did approve this match needs to have a look in the Mirror - Estrada handed Esparza her 1st defeat last time out - who was extremely experienced.- Jaime Ingleby :o: (@jaime_ingleby79) July 25, 2020
Estrada was meant to be facing the far more experienced Jacky Calvo, who won the WBC international flyweight title on her last outing, with the original date set in March.
Covid-19 meant the date of the fight moved and Calvo was still meant to be the opponent but she pulled out late on with a knee injury and Adkins was her replacement on short notice.
After the fight the victorious Estrada said, "I give her so much respect. She's the one who stepped up and took the fight. I knew I had more experience than her.
"Once I went in there, I let my punches go and couldn't stop. She's in there to hurt me as well so I went for the knockout."
All of Adkins wins have come against women who were yet to win a fight, with four of them making their debuts at the time.
She may have been a late replacement but she clearly wasn't up to the standard of her opponent on Friday, and it's no slight against her.
