This contest is for the vacant WBO super featherweight title. Wilson fills up a vacant spot left by Oscar Valdez who had to withdraw due to injury.

Emanuel Navarrete’s Betting Outlook vs Wilson

Navarrete last got out there in August and scored a sixth-round W en route to this pursuit of a world title in a  third division.

He aims to become champion in a higher weight category after moving up following three defenses of the WBO featherweight world title. This run follows a run of five successful title defenses of the WBO super bantamweight title for Navarrete.

The belt is up in the air here following a weight miss by then-champion Shakur Stevenson.

Navarette is ranked number one in the division with Wilson ranked number three by the WBO which perfectly justifies the title clash.

Christopher Diaz, win via TKO Fight 3 Joe Noynay, loss via TKO
Ruben Villa, win via UD Fight 4 Francis Chua, win via UD

This is an intriguing clash for one of the most offensively exciting, pressure-heavy fighters presently in the sport in the form of Navarrete. As much as he has been succeeding in this weight class, there are still some question marks around him and Wilson is more than capable even as a replacement opponent.

Liam Wilson’s Betting Outlook vs Navarrete

Wilson also previously competed last summer and captured the WBOinternationalsuper featherweight belt via points over ten rounds. Now Wilson looks to vault toward that upper echelon world title status after also having collected Australia and Asia Pacific hardware.

He fights outside of Australia for the first time here and looks to follow up on an oath made to Wilson’s father on his deathbed to become a world champion.

The advantage in professional experience is hugely in the favor of Navarrete as well as the superior finishing rate at 83 percent.

Conversely, Wilson has more localized experience in the weight category.

Emanuel Navarrete vs Liam Wilson Prediction

This prizefight is scheduled for twelve rounds, and I don’t think this fight will go until that final bell.

I think there’s good value in seeking out prop bets on this bout not going the distance (positioned at -450), Navarrete winning via KO or TKO (situated at -350), and Navarrete winning between rounds 4-6 (valued at +250).

Pick: Emanuel Navarrete (-1600)
