Navarro (26-3, 12 KOs), from Los Angeles, will be challenging World Boxing Council super flyweight champion Cristian Mijares (33-3-2, 13 KOs), from Gomez Palacio, Mexico.
"Montiel thinks I am a runner - that's what I read on the internet - but that is not true. I am going in banging....I don't like what he is saying about me and my style
"After my last fight I began training immediately. I am in top condition.
"Rudy Perez teaches me about little things - things that I forgot about really - to win fights.
"Mijares vs. Navarro, that"s going to be a war - both are southpaws and it is a difficult fight for both. Who wins? You need a coin toss for that one!"
"Mijares has a lot of weapons. I know that. But he is standing in the way of my dreams. I have been training hard, high in the mountains in Big Bear and I am determined to win this fight. This time I'm coming home with the hardware."
