Emanuel Navarrete vs. Jeo Santisima

12 rounds, for Navarrete's WBO junior featherweight title

Emanuel Navarrete (30-1) will face unkown filipino fighter Jeo Santisima (19-2) on the undercard of Wilder-Fury in a defense of his WBO super bantamweight title. Navarrete has been very active as a champion fighting four times in 2019 and stopping all four opponents. Santisima lost two out of his first four fights and has since then won 17 fights in a row but he has never faced an elite fighter and certainly nothing comparable to Emanuel Navarrete whose learning curve over the last year and a half has been very impressive to say the least. He puts a lot of pressure on his opponents and that along with his power, size and reach advantage has proven too much for his latest foes.

There is nothing at all to suggest that Santisima will be much of a threat here. We think that Navarrete will put a tremendous amount of pressure from the get go and it will be a matter of time before he gets him out of there. The Pick is Emanuel Navarrete to win by ko/tko.
