Omar Narvaez Considers Move To Face Chemito Moreno

By Ricardo Mendez Archibold

Argentine star Omar "The Hurricane" Narvaez (39-1-2, 20KOs), currently the world champion at super flyweight (115 pounds) under the World Boxing Organization (WBO), is considering a future move to the bantamweight division to challenge Panama's Anselmo 'Chemito' Moreno (33-2-1, 12KOs), holder of the WBA's "super" title at 118-pounds.

Narvaez previously made a move to the bantamweight division in 2011, when he suffered his first career loss by way of a twelve round decison to then WBO/WBC champion Nonito Donaire in New York City.

Narvaez returns on August 24th, when he defends his title against Hiroyuki Hisataka in Argentina, while Chemito is back on August 10th against William Urina in Panama City.

'We were discussing that in the future I could face Anselmo Moreno, but we will explore whether or not we should rise again to another division - but that does not mean that I don't have the ability to fight Chemito. I like that fight," said Narvaez.
