  • Should be a really good fight and Gonzalez’ best chance to win a title because Navarrete will stand there and trade with him whenever he wants. But I think Navarrete wins a decision 8-4, 9-3ish

  • It should be a good fight, Navarrette with his awkward herky jerky style and those long uppercuts seems to befuddle many fighters. Joet is solid, even outside his loss to Shakur, he’s a solid challenger and should present a serious threat.

    The rest of the card seems well balanced and competitive.
