Argentina’s WBO Super Fly World Champion Omar Narvaez, 40-1-2 (21) made his 24th title defense stopping his No. 15 contender Hiroyuki Hisataka, 22-11-1 (10), of Japan in 10 round in Trelew, Chubut, ARG.

Narvaez won the WBO Fly title back in July of 2002 over Adonis Rivas. He defended the Fly title 16 times. He won the vacant WBO Super Fly title in May of 2010 by 12 round decision over Everth Briceno of Nicarauga. He defended that title 3 times before attempting to step up and win the WBC/WBO bantamweight titles from Nonito Donaire in New York, October of 2011 and lost for the first and only time so far in his career.

Narvaez came back after this defeat to defend his title 6 more times. This defense puts him ahead of Germany’s Darius Michalczewski’s 23. It also brings him within 1 defense of equaling the great heavyweight champion Joe “The Brown Bomber” Louis’ record. This writer did a story years ago how Julio Cesar Chavez has 28 defenses with 9 at 130, 2 at 135 and 17 at 140.

The 38 year-old Narvaez won both world titles in Argentina and defended in Argentina 18 times. He also defended 3 times in France, 2 in Italy and 1 in Spain.
