Argentinian champion Omar “El Huracan” Narvaez and Mexican challenger Felipe “Gallito” Orucuta were present at a press conference Wednesday in Buenos Aires, Argentina for Narvaez’ fight next Saturday at the famed Luna Park. Narvaez, who is making the seventh defense of his WBO super flyweight world title, stated “I have defended my belt against other challengers who say they are younger and better than me and I emerged victorious. On Saturday will be no exception.”

Orucuta, accompanied by renowned Mexican Hall of Fame trainer Nacho Beristain, said “I bring the best preparation of my career and this opportunity came at the right time in my boxing development. I will go back to Mexico with the belt.”
