Navarrete-Horta announced for Dec 7

It’s official. WBO jr featherweight world champion Emanuel “Vaquero” Navarrete, one of the most exciting fighters in boxing, will be making his third defense in five months on December 7 at the 10,000+ seat Auditorio GNP Seguros in the city of Puebla (about two hours east of Mexico City). Navarrete (29-1, 25 KOs) will defend against WBO #13 rated Francisco “Panchito” Horta (20-3-1, 10 KOs).

Both fighters attended a kick-off press conference today.
Emanuel Navarrete: I always go for the knockout, I think it’s best to win by knockout and on December 7 the people of Puebla will see a great fight!”

Francisco Horta: ”On December 7th people will know me. Expect a war, we are going for the championship of the world!”

Zanfer Promotions also announced that on the same evening, female flyweight stars Gabriela “Bonita” Sanchez (6-3) and Silvia “Guerrerita” Torres (20-1-2, 7 KOs) will clash in an interesting fight as both are coming off world title fights.

ESPN+ is expected to show Navarrete-Horta in the USA, while Azteca 7, la Casa del Boxeo, will air the fight in Mexico.

  • Navarrete vs. Horta looks a bit like a mismatch to me.

    Especially the last two years, Navarrete has fought very good opposition and he has delivered every single time. Horta has never fought an elite fighter and his record is padded: the first few years of his pro career, he mostly fought weak opposition with losing records. Navarrete is P4P the #1 super bantam, and should really be fighting Rey Vargas or Rigo, and not Horta.

    Navarrete by KO within 7 rounds.
