Juan Francisco Estrada vs. Jesse "Bam" Rodriguez picks and prediction

The last time we saw Jesse "Bam" Rodriguez, he looked spectacular in stopping Sunny Edwards, producing arguably the best performance of his career to unify the IBF and WBO flyweight titles.

But now, back up at super flyweight, where he’s already been and won the WBC title, he looks to grab it one more time against a legitimate all-time great in Juan Francisco Estrada.

Estrada, one of the famed ‘Four Kings’ – alongside Carlos Cuadras, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez – but Estrada is the unique one who has beaten all three of those legendary fighters.

Bam has of course beat Cuadras and Rungvisai himself and will be looking to add Estrada’s name to his resume.

While one of the best fighters of his generation, Estrada hasn’t been the most active in recent times. It’s been 18 months since we last saw him in the ring getting a trilogy win over "Chocolatito."

Meanwhile, in that period of time, Bam has been very active, picking up those titles down at flyweight and looking good in the process, particularly against Edwards.

I do feel this could be a classic passing of the torch fight.

Estrada is one of the best technicians in the lower weight classes, but I do feel this could be a bridge too far at this stage of his career. Rodriguez is very fresh, very technically sound as well, and I do believe will be the bigger man on Saturday night.

For me, this weekend I am going with Bam Rodriguez to become the first man to stop Juan Francisco Estrada. Estrada has had only three losses at the top level, but is yet to be stopped in his professional career.

I do feel this could be the time we see the resistance finally broken.

I’m looking at Jesse "Bam" Rodriguez to win by KO/TKO/DQ at +200, and also for Rodriguez to win in rounds 7-12 at +333.

Those key rounds in the second half of the fight is where I feel Bam could get the job done this weekend.
