LOS ANGELES, April 25, 2019 –  On the eve of a blockbuster Southern California fight night at The Forum and broadcasted live on DAZN, the fighters all successfully tipped the scales at The Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles. In the main event of Friday night’s fight card, pound-for-pound star Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Juan Francisco Estrada will meet again at the site of their first fight, which was a leading contender for “Fight of the Year” in 2018.
