Fenech backs Wilson against Navarrete

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Hall of Famer Jeff Fenech has predicted WBO #3 super featherweight Liam Wilson (11-1, 7 KOs) will upset WBO featherweight champion Emmanuel Navarette (36-1, 30 KOs) when they clash for the vacant WBO 130-pound championship on Friday at the Diamond Desert Arena in Glendale, Arizona televised on ESPN. Navarette is as much as a 20:1 favorite.

“Oh, I think the bookies are making a huge mistake with this one,” Fenech told Fox Sports. “I’m actually shocked by the odds. And I honestly believe there’s a heap of money to be made on Liam Wilson this weekend. Because not only do I think he becomes Australia’s newest world champion, but he gets there by knockout.”

  • Don’t put the Moz on Wilson please Jeff, you haven’t got a good record on predictions!!

  • I think French is still dizzy from the thrashing right hands he suffered at the hands of Calvin Grove…

  • Has Jeff ever come out and said an Aussie has no hope of taking a title fight ?
    He probably also backed Alex Leapai to KO Klitschko for the heavyweight crown.
    Fair go Jeff.

  • There will be a knockout Jeff but it won’t be Navarette the one getting knocked out.

  • Same guy who said Brock Jarvis will win a world title, Liam Paro put an end to that nonsense

  • navarette wins this one probably wins in the late rounds with a tko
