Omar Narvaez Tested Tough, Gets Split Nod To Retain

By Miguel Rivera

Estadio Luna Park, Buenos Aires, Distrito Federal, Argentina - Felipe Orucuta (27-2, 23KOs), with the legendary trainer Nacho Beristain in his corner, fought his heart out and some felt the young Mexican boxer had did enough to win, but Omar Narvaez (39-1, 20KOs) get a twelve round split decision to retain the WBO super flyweight championship. The scores were 118-110 for Orucuta, and two cards of 115-113 for Narvaez. Orucuta outworked Narvaez in many of the rounds and landed the hard, crisper punches. Narvaez would often run for most of the round and then attempt to steal it in the final moments with quick bursts of punches from both hands.

Split decision in his hometown means Orucuta wins period!

meh, I watched 6 random rounds of the fight and I thought Narvaez landed most of the clean punches while Orucuta missed a lot. Some of the rounds TYC gave to Orucuta, I gave to Narvaez. Probably wasn't a robbery.

Narvaez is a little "long in the tooth" as they say. He's pretty much irrelevant now, he'd get smoked if he fights JC Sanchez, Estrada, Viloria, Gonzalez, or any of the top guys at or around the weight really.

Robbery = most overused word on boxingscene. Robbery has been redefined to mean a close fight with a decision you don't agree with or a close fight in which the fighter you support doesn't get the decision. Campillo vs Shumenov…
