Emanuel Navarrete puts his WBO Featherweight title on the line for the first time since getting his hands on it at the MGM Grand last October. Facing the Mexican is Christopher Diaz, who challenged for the WBO Junior-Lightweight title three years ago, and will be doubly determined to make this one stick. Read on as we explain how to watch a Navarrete vs Diaz live stream today and catch all the boxing action online from anywhere in the world.
Both fighters are 26 years old, but Navarrete - who's known as "El Vaquero" (The Cowboy) - is the more experienced of the two. He boasts a 32-1 record, with 27 of his victories coming by way of knockout, whereas Diaz's record reads 26-2, with 16 knockouts. Navarrete also has slight height and reach advantages over the man known as "Pitufo" (Smurf).
This is the second world title Navarrete has held, having previously won the WBO Super Bantamweight title in 2018, a belt he successfully defended five times before knocking Ruben Villa to the canvas twice to claim the vacant WBO Featherweight title last year.
Diaz has a tough task on his hands trying to prise it off him, but anything can happen inside the ring. Follow our guide below to watch an Emanuel Navarrete vs Christopher Diaz live stream online from anywhere.
