Andres “Savage” Cortes, the undefeated super featherweight dynamo from Las Vegas, is shaking things up in the boxing world. With a flawless record of 20-0 and 11 KOs, this Top Rank-promoted fighter is not just knocking on the door; he’s kicking it down, calling out WBO world champ Emanuel Navarrete (38-1-1, 31 KOs) and WBC champ O’Shaquie Foster (21-2, 12 KOs).
Following Navarrete’s recent draw against Robson Conceicao at the T-Mobile Arena, Cortes didn’t mince words: “I could have stopped Conceicao, no doubt. Navarrete’s tough, but he’s not unbeatable. My style, my power, my hunger – I’m a serious threat in this division. I’m ready to rumble and after my recent wins, I’ve more than earned my shot at him.”
Cortes, brimming with confidence, sees himself as the most dodged fighter in the super featherweight division. He’s set his sights on climbing the ranks, eyeing a world title shot. And with Foster now under the Top Rank banner, Cortes sees an easy path to setting up a showdown.
“My record’s a loudspeaker. I’ve shown what I’m made of time and again, yet here I am, still being sidestepped,” Cortes says. “Navarrete’s got the belt, sure, but I’m here to show I’m the top dog. And Foster? Now that he’s with Top Rank, that fight’s a no-brainer. I’m gunning for both these champs. I deserve this.”
In the super featherweight realm, Cortes is making waves, ready to prove his mettle against the best. His challenge to Navarrete and Foster is more than just a call-out; it’s a declaration of his readiness to take over.
Cortes wraps up with a bold promise: “When I step into that ring, expect fireworks. None of those snooze-fests for the fans. I’m all about the action, throwing punches, hunting for the knockout. Boring fights? Not in my book.”
