The WBO super flyweight championship will be on the line this Saturday night in Argentina, as Omar Narvaez defends his title against No. 1 ranked contender Felipe Orucuta.

Narvaez (38-1-2, 20 KO) won the title in 2010 and has successfully defended it six times. His lone career loss came when he jumped up in weight to challenge for a share of the bantamweight title, and was easily defeated by Nonito Donaire.

Felipe Orucuta (27-1, 23 KO) is the WBO's top contender at 115-pounds and will enter the fight on a nine fight knockout streak, including two consecutive first round knockouts. But he has never faced anyone the caliber of Narvaez and will be fighting for the first time in a hostile environment.
