Emanuel Navarrete Willing To Face Rey Vargas in December

The super bantamweight champion of the World Boxing Organization, Emanuel 'Vaquero' Navarrete, did not rule out a fourth defense of his belt in December, and he said he was hopeful that it will be a unification against WBC champion Rey Vargas, who was in Las Vegas last Saturday to watch Navarrete triumph over Miguel Elorde.

Navarrete blew away Elorde with ease, as part of the Tyson Fury-Otto Wallin undercard from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Navarrete said he was grateful for the support Zanfer Promotions has given him, for the support of Top Rank and, above all, for the support that the fans have given him in the recent months in which he was crowned champion and defended his title three times already.

"We don't know if we are going to make a fourth defense, but it is done, we are ready for December," Navarrete said to ESPN Deportes.

"Let's see, I would like a unification with Rey Vargas, they say he wants to fight me, I don't know if he will step up after what he saw on Saturday."

Navarrete mentioned that if he can't get Rey Vargas, or the other champion of the division, Daniel Román, he would like to face someone like Guillermo Rigondeaux, who someone mentioned to him, but if not, then he would be ready to move up to 126 pounds in search of another world championship.

"We are enjoying the moment very much, we want to continue with this good run, obviously rest a little because the last two defenses were done in less than a month, but if they tell me that I can make a defense in December - we will grab it," Navarrete said.
