Bou Bout S

Narvaez controlled the action throughout by coming forward, crowding Cabrera, and smothering him with flurries. Cabrera tried to land the heavier shots but struggled to hit the quicker Narvaez. A clash of heads in Round 8 opened a cut on the left eyebrow of Narvaez that bled down the side of his face for much of the remainder of the bout. Cabrera was warned for a low blow in Round 9 and deducted one point in Round 10 for a clash of heads.
