“Super” Fly 3: Juan Francisco Estrada Decisions Felipe Orucuta

No matter why you watched the first two installments of HBO’s 115-pound cards, you left happy. HBO might think that it was for Chocolatito Gonzales or Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, but ultimately that’s not the case. It was never the status of the fighters; it was the quality of the fights.
