Donaire vs Narvaez Clash Awaits HBO's Approval

By Chris LaBate

A bout between WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire (26-1, 18 KOs), and undefeated WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez (35-0-2, 19 KOs), is getting very close to a deal. The fight would take place on October 22nd, likely in Carson, California, with HBO televising. A deal has been reached, but the fight won't be finalized until HBO approves Narvaez as the opponent. If the network decides to pass on Narvaez, there are agreements in place with two backups, Silence Mabuza (23-3, 19 KOs) and Christian Esquivel (23-2, 17 KOs).
