By Jhonny Gonzalez

According to Osvaldo Rivero, promoter for WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez, HBO has approved his boxer as the opponent for WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire. The fight is locked in for October 22nd, likely at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, but Rivero says there is still a chance the fight could take place in Las Vegas.  

Narvaez (35-0-2, 19KOs) will return after winning a unanimous decision over Colombian William Urina on June 11 at Luna Park. He suffered a left hand injury during the fight, but told his promoter the injury has fully healed. Donaire (26-1-0, 18KO) comes back from the stunning second round knockout of Fernando "KOchulito" Montiel on February 19 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Narvarez is/was a great Boxer but he was always better suited as a Amateur fighter. if this was Amateur system he kicks Donaire's ass easily. but now Narvarez is way too old, dude has been in some wars and has never had the power to trouble Donaire. Besides, Donaire is like 15 years younger, fa...
