Emanuel "El Vaquero" Navarrete (El Vaquero means 'the cowboy' in English) has lost just one out of his 35 fights. The Mexican was last in action in April, when he overpowered Christopher Diaz with an impressive 12th round total knockout.
Two-division champion Navarrete has his eye on conquering a third division, but he must face mandatory WBO featherweight challenger Joet Gonzalez first. The 28-year-old, based out of California, lacks his opponent's raw firepower but he's a proven fighter and hungry to step up to a legendary champion.
Gonzalez's last fight in September 2020, when he produced a career-best performance to dominate former three-time featherweight title challenger Miguel Marriaga, earned a 10-round unanimous decision. If Gonzalez can survive an early onslaught from Navarrete, the underdog could become the top dog.
The packed undercard includes an intriguing match-up between unbeaten Giovani Santillan and Angel Ruiz. With San Diego being Santillan's hometown, the 10-round bout will be a raucous affair.
"As soon as I got the call, I was excited because this is something my dad and I talked about for a long time, being part of a big show in San Diego,” Santillan told The Ring. "I’m going to perform for my family, my friends, and my city. This is an incredible opportunity."
