2003-08-09 Omar Narvaez drew 12 Andrea Sarritzu, Municipal Amphitheatre, Villasimius, Sardinia, Italy - WBO. Referee: Luis Pabon. Scorecards: 116-112, 113-115, 114-114. Confident enough to defend his title in Italy against an opponent who had taken him close the previous year, Narvaez (110¼) again held on to his title, the draw appearing to favour Sarritzu (109¼) this time round. Although Sarritzu again proved a tough nut to crack, getting home with occasional heavy shots against his southpaw opponent and staging a grandstand finish, the slick-boxing Narvaez looked to have had the better of it generally.
