Emanuel Navarrete defeats Ruben Villa to win WBO featherweight title

Emanuel Navarrete knocked out Ruben Villa in round one and four, then resisted a late rally to claim the vacant WBO featherweight title on Friday night at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas.
Two judges scored the bout between 114 and 112 and one attributed a victory between 115 and 111 to Navarrete.
"I couldn't get the knockout, but the most important thing is that I got the win and am now a world champion in two divisions," said Navarrete after his win, according to Boxing Scene.
Navarrete (32-1, 27 KOs) pissed off Isaac Dogboe on Dec. 8, 2018 for the WBO super bantamweight title, then made five defenses over the next 14 months. He took an untitled bout against Uriel Lopez in June and stopped it in the sixth round in preparation for the fight with Villa on Friday.
Villa's career record fell to 18-1 with the defeat.
