Omar Narvaez Wants To Win in Style Against Inoue

By Ludo Saenz

On December 30th in Tokyo, Japan - Argentina's super flyweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Omar "Hurricane" Narvaez (43-1-2, 23 KOs), will defend his title against undefeated former WBC junior flyweight champion Naoya Inoue (7-0, 6 KOs), who is moving up by two weight divisions to on the challenge against a fighter who only lost once, by decision, to Nonito Donaire.

"It is a pleasure for me to be in Japan and to be defending my title," Narvaez said. "It is an honor for me. I feel better physically and mentally every year, we are improving, confident as we step into the ring at this point in my career. Inoue is a young promising fighter and has very good technical skills. This fight we have taken is very important. Coming to Japan is a dream that I've always wanted to achieve. I wanted to come here, win and shine as I do it."

Narvaez seems ripe for the taking. Good fighter, but never anywhere near great. Protected too much throughout his career. If this kid is the real deal, he will beat Narvaez convincingly.

Inoue will be like a seasoned veteran after this defeat...
