Omar Narvaez Faces Breilor Teran on June 10, Eyes IBF Title Shot

By Elisinio Castillo

Argentina's Omar Narvaez, the former flyweight and super flyweight world champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), has scheduled a fight against Venezuelan Breilor Teran on Friday June 10 in the city of Trelew.

"El Huracan" Narvaez, 40-years-old, will make the first defense of the Latino bantamweight title of the International Boxing Federation (IBF). The event was confirmed by OFR Promotions.

Narvaez (45-2-2 , 24 KO) won the vacant IBF bantamweight strap by scoring a technical knockout in eight rounds over Venezuelan Jesus Vargas at the New Stadium 'Aurinegro' of Puerto Madryn, Chubut on the 19th of February.

This bout will serve as a measuring stick for Narvaez, who has his eyes firmly fixated on landing a title shot against IBF kingpin Lee Haskins, who this weekend will defend the belt against Mexico's Ivan Morales.

Narvaez is hoping to get a world title shot by the end of this year or early 2017 at the latest.

Teran (30-years-old) hails from the city of Maracaibo; in his last fight on the 10 of April he won the flyweight belt by beating Venezuela Freddy Beleno - the only man to ever beat him by TKO. He previously lost a decision to former world champion Juan Carlos Reveco and has a record of 26 wins (15 KO) and 12 losses.

Inoue-Chocolatito in 2016 makes absolutely no sense. The "Monster" gotta show how good he is on HBO at least twice before making the best lower-weight fight happen.

So i guess no Inoue rematch? If thats the case Inoue should make his debut in the US later this year. Maybe a fight with Gonzalez in the fall? :boxing::boxing:
