Narvaez KOs Garcia to retain WBO belt

WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez (37-1-2, 20 KOs) retained his title with an eleventh round KO over Johnny Garcia (16-4-1, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Estadio Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After a competitive first six rounds, Narvaez dropped Garcia in round seven. Narvaez continued to pull away in the eighth, plus Garcia’s problems were compounded when he was deducted a point for a low blow by referee Roberto Ramirez Jr. Narvaez finally dropped Garcia three times in round eleven to end it. It was Narvaez’ fifth super flyweight title defense.

Journeyman middleweight Sergio Sanders (20-9-2, 11 KOs) won a split decision over previously unbeaten Billi Godoy (26-1, 13 KOs). Godoy dropped Sanders just before the final bell, but it wasn’t enough as Sanders prevailed 76-75, 76.5-76 on two cards. Godoy was ahead 77.5-76.5 on the third card.

Super middleweight Noe Gonzelez (29-2, 21 KOs) knocked out previously unbeaten Miguel Cobas (11-1-4, 4 KOs) in round one.
