PhilBoxing.com





Navarrete-De Vaca and Jessie Magdaleno-Rafael Rivera LIVE on ESPN and ESPN Deportes Saturday (10 p.m. ET) from the home of LAFC


LOS ANGELES (Aug. 15, 2019) Ė The press conference overlooked the new crown jewel of Los Angeles soccer, the year-old Banc of California Stadium, home to Major League Soccer's LAFC. In two days, the inaugural boxing card will take place at the stadium, headlined by Emanuel Navarrete's WBO junior featherweight title defense against unbeaten challenger Francisco De Vaca (ESPN, 10 p.m. ET).

In the co-feature, former junior featherweight world champion Jessie Magdaleno will take on former world title challenger Rafael Rivera in a 10-round featherweight bout expected to produce fireworks.

At the Banc of California Stadium's Founders Club, this is what the fighters had to say.

Emanuel Navarrete

ďThe reality is that my life has changed a lot in these last eight months. The fact that I have become world champion and that I have won over a wide margin to Isaac Dogboe, who came from beating Jessie Magdaleno, makes me very happy. I feel very satisfied with the results we have achieved for the hard work we have done in recent months."

ďThe truth is that it doesn't matter who is my opponent. I always prepare 100% for each of my fights, and this was no exception. We already did the hard work in the gym, and we are ready for a great fight. If De Vaca comes to fight hard, I am prepared to go even harder. I'm ready to give a great battle to all the fans."

ďI've said it several times already: If the other champions of the division don't want to accept the challenge of unifying titles, I will be moving up to the featherweight division. If everything goes well on Saturday, maybe I will make another fight in the super bantamweight division, but if I don't get a unification fight, I would go up to 126 pounds."

Francisco De Vaca

ďIím grateful for this opportunity. Iím ready! I wanted to fight for a world title since I was 5 years old, and now that we have the opportunity, we are going to make our dream come true this Saturday. Come Saturday, there will be a new world champ for Phoenix and MichoacŠn. Iím coming for that world title."

On his first 12-round fight

ďI feel like Iím debuting all over again. We are ready! Iím going to give everyone a great show. Iíve focused on preparing very well mentally because physically Iím always ready. You will see that come Saturday night."

Jessie Magdaleno

ď{Fans can expect} the same Jessie Magdaleno that always brings a fight to the table, the Magdaleno that comes to fight and puts on a show for the fans. Thatís what Iím always aiming for, to please the fans and show everyone what Jessie Magdaleno is capable of.Ē

ďI donít take none of these guys lightly. Every opponent is difficult. Heís fought great fighters. Heís been in there with great fighters and done a hell of a job. I canít overlook him because heís here to put on a great show as well. He throws a lot of punches, and heís quick. Thatís what I am, and thatís what is going to make a hell of a fight for this fight card.Ē

ďIím hoping once this fight goes through, everything goes well, God willing we come out with the victory, Iím hoping it puts me at the top of the spots in all the rankings, all the titles, so I can come back and be a two-time world champion.Ē
Rafael Rivera

ďIím very grateful and happy for the opportunity that Top Rank has given me. Fighting on the first card here is a big opportunity on a big stage, and Iím going to take advantage of it.Ē

ďJessie is a good fighter. Iíve seen him fight before. Heís an aggressive fighter, but Iím just here to do my work."

ďIíve been fighting against top-level fighters for a long time, so I feel confident and secure that whether itís against a world champion or a former champion, Iíll put up a good fight."
