BoxingScene: What are his thoughts on facing Seda and what are the keys to winning the fight?
Omar Narvaez: I think it's a great fight. It is a fight in which the best of the best at 115 pounds will be fighting. I think Seda is a really good fighter with a lot of movement and power in both hands but I have experience to counter anything he has or does.
BoxingScene: Let's talk about Seda's power for a minute. You mentioned Seda's power that he has in both hands. How do you avoid the big punches?
Omar Narvaez: Well I have always been known for having great lateral movement and will use exactly that to counter everything he does and that is how I will avoid getting
BoxingScene: How does do you apply your advantage in experience versus a young and hungry fighter like Seda?
Omar Narvaez: I have many more fights than him and better amateur experience. Maybe for the first couple of rounds he will have some kind of success until I can see and acknowledge what he does and then experience will kick in and help me win the fight.
BoxingSscene: I know you have to run so this is the last question. Assuming you get the win like you plan who do you want to fight next?
Omar Narvaez: I think that if he wins or if I win that we should do a unifying fight with Hugo Cazares. I'm confident that I will come out the winner and I think the fans want to see a unification fight with Cazares.
