All eyes will be on Emanuel Navarrete tonight as he makes his first defense of his WBO featherweight title in Florida. Read on for your full guide to watching a Navarrete vs Diaz live stream and don't miss a single punch.
'Vaquero' captured the 126-lb strap back in October last year after beating Ruben Villa by a tight unanimous decision.
This marks Navarrete's second run with a title, with the Mexican having held the WBO Junior Featherweight title, a belt he successfully defended on five occasions in a nine-month span all via TKO.
Despite plenty of calls for a rematch with Villa following his heavily disputed defeat, Navarrete's first defense comes tonight against a fighter who'll be looking to prove his critics wrong after being dismissed by many as a second-tier opponent for the champ.
A former WBO NABO super featherweight belt holder, Christopher Diaz flopped in a super featherweight world title fight against Masayuki Ito back in 2018 and has done little to convince he is titleholder material since moving down to 125lbs.
With the defending champion boasting an eight-inch reach advantage over Diaz, the odds seem stacked against the Puerto Rican, but could he pull off a shock in Florida?
Read on to find out how to watch a Navarrete vs Christopher live stream online, no matter where you are in the world.
