Omar Narvaez Fully Focused on Turning Inoue Back

By Elisinio Castillo

Omar Narvaez has spent Christmas far away from his home in Trelew. The WBO super flyweight champion traveled to Japan, where on December 30th he will defend his title against rising talent Naoya Inoue.

The fight will happen at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gym. The "Hurricane", 39 and with a record of 43-1-2 (23 KO) will face an opponent 18 years his junior and having a record of 7-0, 6 KO.

"I'm not interested in the difference in years. I always go and box in the same way. But I feel the younger [opponents] respect me. It's something I can play with. Otherwise I do not care, I just have to keep fighting and moving myself forward to defend my title. I get motivation when I have a new fight in front of me," said Narvaez.

"All that I'm thinking about is beating Inoue. I never look ahead. I always go step by step and respect my opponents, and that's the mind set that I have in Japan. Then we'll see what the next defense will be. I feel great. My life is the gym and I never take off for more than a week. I'm used to this. I feel like I'm missing something if I'm not boxing. My body calls for it."
