Emanuel Navarrete and Oscar Valdez squared off in the main event live on ESPN from Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, AZ on Saturday, August 12. The all-Mexican contest featured three-division world champion defending his WBO junior lightweight title against two-division world champion.

The scheduled for 12 rounds world championship bout went the full distance and produced fireworks. In the end, one judge scored the fight 116-112, another judge had 118-110 and the third judge gave 119-109, all in favor of “Vaquero”.

With the victory by unanimous decision, 28-year-old Emanuel Navarrete of San Juan Zitlaltepec, Distrito Federal improved to 38-1, 31 KOs and made the first successful defense of the belt that he landed in February via ninth-round stoppage of Liam Wilson.

“I feel happy to have been part of this card and of this next great chapter of Mexican boxing history,” Navarrete said post-win. “I am happy and appreciate Oscar for the great fight that we delivered.”

“There was some inflammation in my right hand. And the more I used it, the more it hurt. But I had to overcome it.”

“I think the people can best talk about what they saw. They saw the fight tonight. I was here fighting with Valdez. And I feel good. Thank God, I won. I appreciate what he did in the ring. He is a Mexican warrior. If the people want a rematch, they will demand it.”

32-year-old Oscar Valdez of Nogales, Sonora dropped to 31-2, 23 KOs and suffered his second career defeat.

“He is a warrior,” Valdez said. “I tried my best. We gave it our best. He is a warrior. He is a true champion. I’m sorry I disappointed everyone. I feel terrible. I wanted to give you all a great fight. I hope you enjoyed the fight. I hope to return strong.”
