Navarrete: Conceição deserves the rematch

After their all action majority draw on Thursday night, both Emanuel Navarrete and Robson Conceição were open to a return match.

Emanuel Navarrete: “The decision is well-deserved. Robson is a great fighter. He left his heart in the ring. There were some details with regard to technique, but we accomplished what we said we would do. We gave a great show for the fans. And, at least, I am very happy to come away with the title. He deserves the rematch, but that decision doesn’t depend 100 percent on me. But, if it does happen, I would train even better. He knows how I fight, and I know how he fights, so it would make for an excellent fight.”

Robson Conceição: “It was a hard fight. He is very strong. It was a difficult. But I know what I did tonight. It was a good fight. It deserves a rematch. If we do get the rematch, we will both train harder and will give an even better fight.”

  • Great fight, no way a draw though, Navarrete busted the other guy up. rematch? Sure!
    Shakur did himself no favors, If I had paid for that I’d be annoyed!

    • Thought Navarette 114-112 but draw fair as many rounds were close. Navarette landed more meaningful punches but was outworked in many of the rounds.

  • Impossible to not like Navarette. Humble guy whose style is about as fan-friendly as it gets. Would love to see a rematch.

  • The broadcasters said :

    “””we all want to watch a rematch between Navarrete and Robson concenciao “”””

    And I agree !!!!!
