Donaire-Narvarez: Top Rank Working Hard To Finalize

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum advised BoxingScene.com/Inquirer that his people were working hard to finalize a fight between WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire and Omar Narvaez, the WBO's super flyweight champ, at the Home Depot in Carson City, California on October 22. Narvaez, a 36 year old Argentine southpaw, has a record of 35-0-2 with 19 knockouts.

Narvaez won the vacant WBO super flyweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Nicaragua’s Everth Briceno on May 15, 2010 and successfully defended the title against William Urina of Colombia with a unanimous twelve round decision last June 11.

Narvaez previously held the WBO flyweight title which he won also via a twelve round unanimous decision over Adonis Rivas on July 13, 2002 and made 17 successful defenses before moving up in weight.

Among those he beat were Filipino Rexon Flores on August 5, 2006 and Panama’s Carlos Tamara on January 25, 2008 both by twelve round unanimous decisions. He recently beat the very respected Puerto Rican prospect Cesar Seda Jr.

First Chango Vargas then Hernan Marquez now Omar Narvaez. Yeah yeah Nonito had a Conte KO over Montiel and he won the belts, but even when he was at the smaller divisions top rank always put him up in bull****…

Some posters on this site are like politicians: they think if they state something enough, it becomes fact. It really only takes two minutes of internet searching to discover that Narvaez has defended six times in Europe. So it's not…
