Seniesa Estrada Beat Her Opponent In Sevens Seconds In One Of Boxing's Biggest Mismatches

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.

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.
