Omar Narvaez Returns, Easily Decisions Jose Cabrera

By Jhonny Gonzalez

San Juan, Argentina - WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez returned to his natural weight and won an easy twelve round unanimous decision over rugged Mexican challenger Jose Cabrera (20-3-2, 8 KOs), who tried every trick possible to disrupt the boxing strategy of Narvaez (36-1-2, 19 KOs). The scores were 118-108, 120-106 and 118-108. Cabrera lost a point for a head clash which opened up a cut above the left eye of the champion.

Last October Narvaez moved up to the bantamweight division to challenge the WBC champion at the time, Nonito Doniare, and dropped a lopsided twelve round decision before a packed crowd at The Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden.
