Photos: Omar Narvaez Dedicates KO Win To Late Father

Estadio Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez (37-1-2, 20 KOs) stopped Johnny Garcia (16-4-1, 8 KOs) in the eleventh round. Narvaez was getting the edge in a good boxing match and dropped Garcia in the seventh round. Narvaez controlled the action and then let his hands go in round eleven, dropping Garcia three times to end things. Narvaez dedicated the win to his father, who recently passed away. The passing of Narvaez's father pushed the fight from Wednesday to Saturday.
