Seniesa Estrada believes there is light at the end of the tunnel.

The unbeaten two-division titlist and pound-for-pound entrant is hoping for an offer to pan out that will place her on the recently announced August 6 DAZN show. Estrada was reportedly offered a rematch with Anabel Ortiz in a WBA strawweight title fight that would serve in supporting capacity to the rescheduled Vergil Ortiz-Michael McKinson welterweight bout at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

“I’m excited and eager to get back in the ring,” Estrada said in a message provided to and select other reporters Thursday evening. “I was offered by Golden Boy Promotions, Anabel Ortiz as my title defense opponent. I will be defending my WBA world title against Anabel.” has learned that while Estrada (22-0, 9KOs) will accept the fight, there is still work ahead well beyond her control to finalize terms. A message left with Golden Boy representatives to confirm the fight was not immediately returned as this goes to publish.

The bout will be the first of the year for the East Los Angeles native. The unfortunate inactive stretch in her career comes after a breakout campaign in 2021 that saw Estrada claim the WBA strawweight and WBO junior flyweight titles in consecutive fights. A cherry on top came in the form of a highlight-reel, fourth-round knockout of unbeaten Maria Santizo last December in San Antonio, Texas.

A rematch with Ortiz landing on the August 6 show would see Estrada’s title reign come full circle. Her win over Ortiz (31-5, 4KOs) last March 20 also took place at this very venue. Local hero Vergil Ortiz (18-0, 18KOs)—no relation to Anabel—headlined that show as well in a knockout win over former junior welterweight titlist Maurice Hooker.

Should this fight—or any other involving Estrada—come to fruition, it would put to end the previous months-long standoff between the supremely gifted boxer and Golden Boy Promotions.

There were hopes for Estrada to have appeared on a March 19 show in Los Angeles—the original date for Ortiz-McKinson, before Ortiz withdrew after being hospitalized to treat rhabdomyolysis—and also on an April 9 show in San Antonio topped by the return of unbeaten lightweight Ryan Garcia. Ironically, Estrada was ultimately a part of both events, though her role was limited to expert analyst as part of the DAZN broadcast team.

Estrada previously told during the Katie Taylor-Amanda Serrano fight week in New York City that her targeted time frame for a return was July. A fight with Mexico City’s Ortiz only slightly alters that timetable but still allows her career to move forward.

It would come against an opponent that Estrada already handily defeated, having scored a lopsided decision win I in their DAZN-aired title fight last March. though also as a sign of respect to the first fighter to offer Estrada a shot at a major title.

“If there’s anybody who deserves a chance at my WBA world title, it’s definitely Anabel Ortiz,” noted Estrada of the 35-year-old two-time strawweight titlist, who made 12 successful defenses of the WBA title she held for eight years. “So, I know it’s going to be a great fight and we’re going to put on a great show. I’m excited and eager to get back in the ring August 6.”
