Emanuel Navarrete Retains Title with Victory over Jeo Santisima

By Anthony “Stacks” Saldaña

The WBO Super Bantamweight Champion Emanuel Navarrete (31-1, 26 KOs) took complete control and dominated his championship fight with the Filipino, Jeo Santisima (19-3, 16 KO’s) from the opening bell. The champion Navarrete used his power and his speed to break down the tough Santisima and stopped him in the 11th round. With the victory, Navarrete has now successfully defended his WBO Super Bantamweight title for the fifth time in nine months. After the fight, Navarrete stated “I hit him weirdly with my right hand and hurt my thumb, but I had to plow through it and get the victory. The fight took a long time because I had a very tough opponent.”
