Emanuel “Vaquero” Navarrete acknowledges Robson Conceicao as one of the most formidable opponents he has faced in his career, a boxer who appears to be invincible but Navarrete is ready to take on the challenge.
The Brazilian fighter has only suffered two defeats in his career, against Shakur Stevenson and Oscar Valdez, but he managed to go the distance in both fights. Navarrete aims to achieve something that his predecessors couldn’t.
“If I can knock out Robson, it will be an extraordinary accomplishment surpassing what Valdez and Shakur have achieved against him.” stated the WBO super featherweight champion during a media interview.
Navarrete will put his 130-pound title on the line this Thursday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, facing a formidable opponent known for his endurance.
However, after an intense training camp lasting over a month, Emanuel aims to finish the fight before the final bell against an opponent who has never been knocked out, but the Mexican boxer is determined to be the first to achieve this feat.
“We had a very productive camp, and I believe we made significant progress,” he said. “Robson is seemingly unbreakable, capable of enduring numerous blows. It’s challenging to land a clean shot or predict a knockout, but we will strategize and work towards it.”
Vaquero Navarrete Prepares for the Toughest Challenge of His Career
Navarrete, a three-division world champion, has faced formidable opponents in the past, but Robson Conceicao presents an even greater challenge, particularly due to his impressive amateur background, which includes winning a gold medal in the Olympic Games.
“Considering his skills inside the ring, yes, he will be the most formidable opponent I have ever faced,” concluded Emanuel Navarrete. “I have never fought against such a technically gifted fighter, and his achievements as an Olympic boxer make him even more difficult to contend with. It’s a tough task to face opponents like him.”
