2002-12-14 Omar Narvaez w pts 12 Andrea Sarritzu, Quartu Saint Elena Sports Palace, Cagliari, Italy - WBO. Referee: Joe Cortez. Scorecards: 112-116, 116-113, 116-112. Boxing on foreign soil for the first time, Narvaez (111¼) held on to his title by a split decision after being pushed all the way by Sarritzu (111¾), who proved an extremely tough test. The southpaw champion had set a fast pace from the start, but the hard-punching Sarritzu stayed with him and finished the stronger of the two.
