Omar Narvaez Routs Hiroyuki Hisataka In Ten Rounds

By Jake Donovan

Omar Narvaez enjoyed the eighth defense of his 115 lb. belt with a vicious 10-round beating of fringe contender Hiroyuki Hisataka in their scheduled 12-round championship bout Saturday evening in Trelew, Argentina.

The bout was every bit the mismatch as was suggested on paper. Narvaez came out strong and never took his foot off of the gas. The Argentine boxer was more aggressive than has been the case in years, perhaps cognizant of the fact that his visiting Japanese foe lacked the ability to outbox him or impose any form of physical damage.

Hisataka was out on his feet at several points during the fight, but was finally put out of his misery in the 10th round. Narvaez unloaded on a now-defenseless challenger to the point of forcing referee intervention to stop the rout.

The official time was 1:26 of round ten.

Narvaez (39-1-2, 20KO) has now won five straight since his miserably failed attempt at conquering then-unified bantamweight titlist Nonito Donaire in their infamous Oct. '11 stinker. The Argentine southpaw is 25-1-1 overall in title fights, including a deep run at flyweight before moving up in weight three years ago.

Hisataka (22-11-1, 10KO) looked every bit the part of an undeserving challenger. Incredibly, the bout was his fifth shot at a title, reaching this particular point after scoring an upset win over former lineal flyweight champ Sonny Boy Jaro earlier this year.

UNDERCARD

Allan Lugues Castillo (7-1, 3KO) had an easy go of things in a six-round decision over Sebastian Ferrerya (10-19-2, 4KO). Scores were 59-55 (twice) and 60-54 in favor of Castillo, who outworked the local clubfighter in every round.

Whoever made this match should be prosecuted. This could have ended in a tragedy, total mismatch. Bout should have stopped much sooner. Boxing got lucky that there was not a boxer carried out on a stretcher and to the morgue.
