During his post-fight interview “El Super” Nova called out two-weight world champion Emanuel Navarrete.
“It feels good to fight close to home a day after my birthday,” Nova said. “I had a tricky opponent in front of me, but I got the job done.”
“I want [WBO world champion Emanuel Navarrete], to be honest. Everybody thinks he’ll blow me out. Put him in there. Let’s see if he’ll do it. I know I’ll beat him. I know I have the punch output, I know I’ll knock him out, and I know I’ll be the next WBO champion.”
