Omar Narvaez Returns Strong, Stops Vargas in Eight

By Elisinio Castillo

The return of former two division world champion Omar Narvaez (45-2-2, 22KOs), 40years-old, was successful in Chubut, Argentina.

The veteran picked up an eight round stoppage of Jesus 'Gazu' Vargas of Venezuela. For Narvaez this was only his second fight since getting knocked out in December 2014 in Tokyo by Japanese sensation Naoya Inoue. With the win he captures the vacant IBF Latino bantamweight title.

Coming into this fight, Vargas (14-4-1, 10KOs) had won his last four bouts and saw action a whopping eight times in 2015. He turned pro in September 2013 and has been very active. The 23-year-old has a very padded record and had never faced anyone even close to the experience level of Narvaez.

Narvaez turned 40 years old last year. In October he climbed back into the ring to win a ten round unanimous decision over Dominican Diego Luis Pichardo Liriano. It was a one-sided outing in the former champ's favor.

The veteran is looking to get one more title fight before he decides to hang up the gloves. In the fight with Liriano he captured the vacant WBO International super flyweight championship, which helped his cause in the rankings. He wants a rematch with Naoya Inoue. The WBO has already said they would sanction the fight is the two sides ever pursued a second fight.

Narvaez didn't mention an Innoue rematch this time. Looks like he's giving that up.
