By William Trillo
This week in Sante Fe Springs the undefeated Super
Middleweight Shawn Estrada (10-0,9 KOís) was putting some
finishing touches on his training camp routine as he
prepares to take on Jon Schmidt next week on a very fine
card at Pechanga Resort and Casino. With the help of another
fine 168 pounder, Librado Andrade, it looks like Estrada is
ready to keep his winning streak alive.

happy, I have not fought at home in a while and this is my

like this working with me. Librado is the # 2 ranked Super

seen the best in the division, it must make it seem easy
once you face your opponent.

learn from a guy like this.
