Milenyo aching to fight Estrada

Milan ‘Milenyo’ Melindo is itching to return to the ring in his world title fight against WBA and WBO flyweight champion Juan Fransisco Estrada of Mexico.

The title bout is schedule on July 27 at the Cotai Arena Venetian Casino in Macau.

Estrada is the one who beat two-time world champion Brian Viloria via a split decision last April 6 also in Macau.

But Melindo said that he has the guts to take on Estrada and that his strategy is all set to beat Estrada.

Melindo has yet to lose a bout.

Of his 29 fights, Melindo also has 29 wins, 17 of those wins are from foreign contenders while 12 are from knockouts.

Melindo got his moniker from the strong typhoon ‘Milenyo’.

Melindo is expected to end the jinx of the Filipino boxers after consecutive losses from Manny Pacquiao, Brian Viloria and Nonito Donaire. (Chris Capulso)
