Emanuel “Vaquero” Navarrete acknowledges Robson Conceicao as one of the most formidable challenges of his career, a boxer who appears invincible but Navarrete is ready to take him on.
The Brazilian has only suffered two defeats in his career, against Shakur Stevenson and Oscar Valdez, but he managed to go the distance in both fights. Now, Vaquero aims to accomplish what his predecessors couldn’t.
“If I can knock out Robson, it will be an extraordinary achievement surpassing everything Valdez and Shakur have done against him.” stated the WBO super featherweight champion during a media interaction.
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.
“We had a great training 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 challenging opponent of my career,” concluded Emanuel Navarrete. “I have never fought against such a technically gifted fighter, and his achievements as an Olympic boxer make him even more formidable. It’s always difficult to face opponents of his caliber.”
