2004-03-06 Omar Narvaez w rsc 3 Reginaldo Martins Carvalho, Luna Park Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina - WBO. Referee: Roberto Ramirez. Defending his title for the sixth time, Narvaez (111½) showed his class from the opening bell to overwhelm Martins Carvalho (109) with excellent combinations before rocking him with a southpaw left uppercut in the second. The writing was clearly on the wall, and when Narvaez tossed in a series of unanswered combinations in the third the referee had seen enough, bringing the contest to a halt at 1.28 of the round.
