Top Rank has beefed up its Nov. 16 card with the inclusion of a second world title fight.
WBO junior lightweight titlist Emanuel Navarrete will make his second defense when he takes on Robson Conceicao, who will be getting his third shot at glory, in the co-feature of the Shakur Stevenson-Edwin De Los Santos vacant WBC lightweight title bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The bout will headline a Top Rank Boxing on ESPN card on a Thursday night of a big week in Las Vegas that culminates with the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix on Nov. 19.
