The path to the glory of the Mexican began with a remarkable step in the super roosters, where he won the definitive belt in 2018 of the OMB, made five successful defenses before making the jump to the pen.
Now as the 126-pound world champion, The cowboy will make his second fight in 2021 after successfully defending his title for the first time against Christopher Diaz on April 24 and thus achieved his 34th win after knocking him out in the last episode.
After his triumph against Diaz Smurf, Shakur Stevenson commented on social media that he would love to face off with Emanuel, but this duel will not take place for now, since the American is currently the interim champion in the super feathers by the OMB.
“Of course I would love that fight,” he commented on Twitter, Shakur. “If he goes up I wouldn’t mind putting the belt on the line against him.”
