2003-11-14 Omar Narvaez w rtd 10 Alexander Makhmutov, Marcel Cerdan Sports Palace, Levallois-Perret, France - WBO. Referee: Samuel Viruet. Making an aggressive start when taking the fight to the southpaw champion, Makhmutov (111½) was countered for his pains as Narvaez (112) stayed close and landed telling punches. Having taken a clear lead by the middle rounds, Narvaez opened up with right hooks to head and body to floor Makhmutov in the ninth, and following the tenth, a round in which Makhmutov took heavy punishment, the latter was retired by his corner.
