With two trilogies under his belt within the last seven fights, Joshua Franco couldn’t be more ready to move on to the next chapter of his career.

The top-rated junior bantamweight survived his third fight with Andrew Moloney, claiming a well-deserved unanimous decision victory over the Australian last month at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The feat wrapped up a three-fight series spanning fourteen months, beginning with Franco’s competitive but clear win last June. The San Antonio native repeated that effort in a more decisive victory over the weekend, defending a secondary version of the WBA junior bantamweight title that he plans to upgrade soon.

Ahead of Franco on the depth chart is reigning lineal/WBA “Super”/WBC champion Juan Francisco Estrada (42-3, 27KOs), who is on course for a trilogy of his own. A rubber match looms ahead with former four-division champ Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez (50-3, 41KOs), with Franco (18-1-2, 8KOs) very much up for facing the winner.

“I want to fight either one of those guys,” Franco told BoxingScene.com. “It would be fireworks and so great for the fans.”

A fight against anyone he hasn’t yet faced would be a welcomed sight. The past seven bouts for the 25-year-old Franco have been his three with Moloney, a win over Jose Burgos in his return to junior bantamweight last January and three fights with the now-retired Oscar Negrete, against whom Franco was 1-0-2 in just a ten-month span.

Saturday’s performance was confirmation that Franco is a leading contender in a stacked junior bantamweight division.

Joining Estrada and Gonzalez at the elite level are four-division and reigning WBO junior bantamweight titlist Kazuto Ioka (27-2, 15KOs) and former lineal champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (50-5-1, 43KOs). All are on the future wish list for Franco, a former regional bantamweight titlist who eventually plans to move back up in weight—preferably after cleaning out the 115-pound division.

“For now, I want to accomplish as much as possible before moving back up to 118,” notes Franco. “Estrada, Chocolatito, Iola, Rungvisai—I want all of those fights. I’m ready for all of them.”
