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.
The less said about Fenech’s fight predictions the better.
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
Fenech’s predictions are the worst in boxing history lol !
