Two-division champ Emanuel Navarrete is all set to go in this defence of his WBO featherweight title tonight against hard-hitting Mexican Chris Diaz. The action gets underway at 3am at the Silver Spurs Arena, Florida, for a thrilling 12-round clash, with a packed undercard. Make sure you know how to watch a cheap Emanuel Navarrete vs Christopher Diaz from anywhere in the world.
Emanuel "El Vaquero" Navarrete (El Vaquero means 'the cowboy' in English) is one of boxing's busiest world champions. The in-demand Mexican warrior picked up the WBO featherweight belt back in October after beating the previously undefeated Ruben Villa.
Most fans believe Navarrete was a more impressive fighter at super bantamweight than he is at featherweight but with an 8-inch reach advantage over his opponent this weekend, Navarrete is clear favourite to see off the challenge for his 126lbs strap.
Not that Christopher Diaz will want to take a dive. With Puerto Rican pride at stake, 'Pitufo' (that's 'Smurf' in English) will pour everything he has into shocking the Mexican cowboy. Still, you can't get away from the fact that Diaz comes into this fight with a patchy 3-2 record in his last five fights. He's got it all to do.
Emanuel Navarrete vs Christopher Diaz will be proceeded by a corking undercard featuring Brooklyn-based phenomenon Edgar Berlanga, who has KO'd all 16 of his opponents in the first round. Wow. The man they're calling the next Tyson will be walked into the ring by rapper Lil Wayne.
