Two-division world champion Emanuel “Vaquero” Navarrete (36-1, 30 KOs) and Liam Wilson (11-1, 7 KOs) faced off Wednesday at the final press conference for Friday’s clash for the vacant WBO 130-pound belt at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona.

Emanuel Navarrete: “For me and my team, being a three-division world champion will be the culmination of yet another goal in my career. We know that it won’t be easy. But, by doing that, I’ll feel that I have done something good in my career, and I’ll be satisfied with what I have achieved in my 10 years as a professional boxer.”

Liam Wilson: “This means everything. This is what me, my team, my promoter, my manager and my trainers have worked for. We’ve taken the risks and challenges, and I know that on fight night I have a tough fight ahead of me. Navarrete is a great champion, but I do plan on giving him the fight of his life. I’m going to win.”

  • Would rather watch this card for free then pay to watch the garbage aussie fights on Main Event

    • Just like the garbage cards you yanks produce….fat slob heavyweights, big mouth fighters and definitely produce sore losers that always blame someone else.
      Garbage cards by crooked promoters.
      Happens all over the world mate…. not just in Australia

      • haha.. who said I was a yank. Surely you can’t tell me you enjoyed Gallen’s fights

  • It seems to me that Wilson should not be fighting Navarette at this stage of his career. There are exceptions, but having only 12 fights on his resume is too little experience to engage with an opponent with Navarette’s record.
