The Mexican super bantamweight and current champion of the WBO, Emanuel “Cowboy” Navarrete with 24 years old from state of Mexico will defend his title against no. 4 WBO Juan Miguel Elorde from Gran Manila who remains undefeated since winning the championship title with 32 years old.

The Mexican and the Philippine will accompany Fury, Wallin, Munguia and Allotey on September 14 for Mexico’s Independence Day weekend fights in Las Vegas.

Navarrete commented: “I am very excited and proud to be part of the big card in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena and to defend my title in front of my people on such a special date for my beloved Mexico… We will represent the Mexican flag on the biggest stage in boxing.”

The “Cowboy” won his title over Isaac Dogboe in 2012 and beat Francisco De Vaca by knockout in the third-round last weekend and now is ready to beat Elorde who has won his last 18 fights in the past eight years and said “Trust me, I will bring my special brand of Pinoy Power to Las Vegas,” Elorde said. “The title will come home to the Philippines.”

“The paperwork is done, and I expect to get it back shortly,” Moretti, Top Rank vice president said. “Elorde is ranked No. 2 in the WBO and the fight is sanctioned. Elorde was already in the gym and he took the fight with no hesitation. It’s Mexico versus the Philippines on Mexican Independence Day weekend. We’re very happy we could get the deal done with all parties.”

September 14 will undoubtedly be an energetic day full of meetings in which fighters will fight for great titles and special belts. We’ll see if Navarrete takes the victory along with his Mexican teammates.
