Emanuel Navarrete vs Oscar Valdez Preview

Emanuel Navarrete is coming to the fight six months after defending his WBO Super-featherweight strap against Australian opponent Liam Wilson, where he was scheduled to fight his next opponent Oscar Valdez who suffered an injury then. 

Moreover, Navarrete is unbeaten since losing against Daniel Argueta in June 2012, a run spanning 11 long years. Overall, Emanuel possesses a record of 37 wins and just one loss, accompanied by 31 knockout victories.

However, looking at his previous three fights (against Joet Gonzalez, Eduardo Baez, and Liam Wilson), the Mexican boxer can be seen absorbing a little more punishment, and that’s what stopped him from becoming the heavy favorite for the fight against Valdez, his most formidable opponent yet.

On the other hand, his opponent is fellow country boxer Oscar Valdez, who lost his WBC belt to Shakur Stevenson last year but won against Adam Lopez in Last Vegas last May.

Overall, the two-time Olympian and former two-division world champion boast a record of 31 wins and one loss, with 23 knockout wins under his name. That said, Valdez remains the favorite to win the encounter, despite a few doubts raised after his defeat against Stevenson.

Moving forward, Valdez vs. Navarrete isn’t the only fight fans are looking forward to, with several exciting fights scheduled for the undercard. In one of the anticipated fights on the card, Lindolfo Delgado and Jair Valtierra will take on each other, while in another fight, Richard Torrez Jr. and Willie Jake Jr. will face each other.

It’s worth mentioning that Raymond Muratalla and Diego Torres’s fight was also scheduled, but the former was forced off the event after suffering an injury during training.

Valdez vs. Navarrete: What has been said?

“Winning this fight would boost my career significantly. I would feel complete. What has been missing in my career is a victory against someone like Valdez. It would fill me with pride to be part of such an iconic fight between Mexicans and come out victorious. 

“People know that I throw a lot of punches and that I’m always in attractive fights. Now, with Valdez, I believe it will be twice as spectacular. Valdez is a fighter who doesn’t hold back. We always see him moving forward and throwing punches.” Navarrete said.

“He says he will knock my head off, but let’s see whose head comes first. Let’s see what Valdez has to offer, and let’s see how much he can endure and how much I can endure, too.” He further added.

“It’s one of the most important fights of my career because it means everything for me to come back and win that title,” said Valdez.

“I always tell people that I grew up during the era of Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barrera. Those two fighters inspired me to be the fighter that I am today. So, to leave something similar in history would mean the world to me.”

“I’m more motivated for this fight than any other fight I’ve been in.” He further added.
