Review: 2014-12-30, good fight between Omar Narvaez and Naoya Inoue: it gets three stars. The 39-year-old Omar Andres Narvaez (18 years older than Inoue) entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 43-1-2 (23 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.1 super flyweight he suffered his only defeat in 2011 when he moved up in weight class to the bantamweight division and he faced Nonito Donaire in a bout valid for the WBC and WBO Bw titles (=Donaire vs Narvaez); since then he has won eight consecutive fights, the last one against Felipe Orucuta (=Narvaez vs Orucuta 2).
His opponent, the undefeated Naoya Inoue, has a perfect record of 7-0-0 (6 knockouts) and he entered as the No.1 light flyweight, he has fought twice in 2014 defeating Adrian Hernandez (bout valid for the Wbc light-Flw belt, Hernandez vs Inoue) and Samartlek Kokietgym (=Inoue vs Kokietgym). ‘El Huracan’ Narvaez vs Inoue is valid for the WBO World super flyweight title (held by Narvaez).
