Emanuel Navarrete vs. Denys Berinchyk: Date, time, how to watch, background


Emanuel Navarrete and Denys Berinchyk will defend the uninhabited WBO 135-pound title Saturday night at Pechanga Arena in San Diego.

EMANUEL NAVARRETE (38-1-1, 31 KOs)
VS.  DENYS BERINCHYK (18-0, 9 KOs)

  • Date: Saturday, May 18
  • Time: 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT (centerpiece later on in program)
  • Where: Pechanga Arena, San Diego
  • TELEVISION/Stream: ESPN+
  • Division: Lightweight (135 pounds)
  • At stake: Vacant WBO title
  • Boxing Junkie Pound-for-pound: None
  • Odds: Navarrete 5-1 preferred (average of numerous outlets)
  • Significance (approximately 5 star): ****
  • Also on the card: Giovani Santillan vs. Brian Norman Jr., welterweights
  • Background: Navarrete is a previous 122-pound titleholder who was offered the chance to combat for the uninhabited WBO title despite the fact that he’s making his launching at the weight and is coming off a bulk draw with Robson Conceicao at 130 in November. Navarrete provided probably his finest efficiency in his previous battle, a one-sided choice over previous champ Oscar Valdez last August. The 29-year-old is a long lasting fighter whose specialty is volume punching. Berinchyk, a 36-year-old Ukrainian, will be defending a significant title for the very first time. The 2012 Olympic silver medalist made his chance at the belt by quickly outpointing Anthony Yigit on the Oleksandr Usyk-Daniel Dubois card last August.
  • Prediction: Navarrete SD
