ESPN Friday Night Results: Estrada and Dallas Pound Their Way To Victories


By: William Holmes

Arlington Texas was home to ESPN Friday Night Fights latest installment of their season. In the opening bout, Shawn Estrada and Terrance Woods were originally contracted to fight at a weight limit of 172lbs. Last minute shenanigans ensued and the bout was changed to a weight limit of 190lbs. Absurdly, Estrada weighed in yesterday at 196lbs. Somehow the bout was allowed to continue, and Shawn Estrada pummeled Terrance Woods from corner to corner. Woods was clearly outclassed, and also had to deal with the extra weight but Estrada was unable to finish him. Coming in over 20 pounds heavier than the original contract weight was an embarrassment, and clearly swept every round. Somehow one judge saw the fight 78-74 for Estrada, which was laughable.

Mike Dallas Jr. took Migual Gonzalez in a junior welterweight bout. Dallas lost his last two previous bouts, but was able to bounce back tonight with a stead attack to the body and bouncing in and out with quick combinations. Gonzalez’s left hand was in a cast two weeks prior, but his punches did have any snap or power behind them, and ate several hard uppercuts to the body throughout the night. Dallas looked good tonight, and it was a good way to bounce back after two hard defeats.
