2002-07-13 Omar Narvaez w pts 12 Adonis Rivas, Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBO. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 117-109, 117-109, 119-107. In only his 12th bout, the southpaw Narvaez (111¾) became the first of the 2000 Olympians to win a world title when he waltzed to a lopsided points win over Rivas (111½), who was making his first defence. The Nicaraguan was outboxed from start to finish as the scores suggested.
