Nava won with two scores of 59-57, while one judge had it a 55-55 draw.
“I did get frustrated through certain points in the fight,” said Nava.
“His fighting style was slick, and he was able to get in and get out with ease. At that point, my corner encouraged me to step in and use my jab to break in. This was a good experience for me, and I’m glad I got to fight a boxer with a style that I haven’t seen before, and get the win.”
