Lots of interest in this one. Outstanding featherweight Emmanuel Navarrete moves up a weight class in an effort to take the vacant WBO super featherweight title.
Former world champ Oscar Valdez was the original opponent slated for Navarrete, but was subsequently replaced by Australian Liam Wilson.
Wilson is well known to Philippines fans as the man dropped by Joe Noynay, subsequently reversing that outcome in a rematch.
Wilson is a big 130lb fighter and always in great shape, so it will be interesting to see if Navarrete is as effective in the new weight class against a larger and heavy handed opponent.
