NEW YORK (January 17, 2020) - Saturday night at the Turning Stone Resort Casino, world-ranked junior lightweight contender Abraham "Super" Nova will make his Top Rank debut when he takes on the grizzled veteran Pedro Navarrete in a bout scheduled for eight-rounds.
Nova, who is managed by Split-T Management, is currently ranked number-seven by both the WBA and WBO, and has a record of 17-0 with 13 knockouts. He has gained the rankings on the strength of wins over Weusi Johnson (1-0), Martin Nicolas Matamala (9-2), Andres Zapata (7-1), Hassan Nourdine (9-2), Sulaiman Segawa (11-1), Brian Pelaez (8-2), Mario Lozano (18-2-1), Luis Castillo (20-3) and in his last bout, Nova stopped Sandro Hernandez in four rounds on October 19th in Belgium.
"Camp went pretty good. I had left camp with Teofimo Lopez and was already in shape when I started training for my fight," said Nova.
Navarrete is a 19-year pro who has a record of 30-24-3 with 19 knockouts, and has wins over three undefeated foes.
My opponent is a tough veteran with a lot of experience. He went the distance with Mikey Garcia. He is game."
"The mission is always the same and that is to win. Now that I am on a bigger platform, and being viewed all over the world, it does put a little bit more of a chip on my shoulder."
"This fight will not go the distance. I will give my self a late birthday gift which was on January 14th."
Nova was 132 lbs. at Friday's weigh in. Navarrete was 133 lbs.
The bout will be streamed live on ESPN+ beginning at 7 PM ET.
