The young Mexican Juan Francisco Estrada claimed the WBO and WBA flyweight world titles in Macau on Saturday with a split points decision victory over reigning champion Brian Viloria.
Estrada, at 22 a decade younger than his Filipino-American opponent, was in front on two of the judges scorecards to claim a fully deserved win over the scheduled 12 rounds.
He improves his overall record to 23 victories against two defeats.
Viloria, who came into the fight with 32 wins and only three defeats behind him, got the better of the earlier rounds.
