Omar Narvaez Will Defend The WBO Title on June 11

By Ludo Saenz Luaces, notifight.com

Argentinean star Omar Narvaez (34-0-2, 19KOs) will defend the super flyweight belt of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) on June 11 against an opponent to be determined. Narvaez will headline a card at the legendary Luna Park in Buenos Aireas, Argentina. Promotor Oswaldo Rivero announced the date. Narvaez returns for the first time since winning a tough decision over previously unbeaten Cesar Seda of Puerto Rico, which took place on April 15.

“We are in talks with a few fighters who are in the WBO super flyweight rankings," said Rivero. "We also looking at the possibility of having WBA and WBO flyweight champion, the undefeated Yesica Bopp, make a new defense."
