"Frankie Narvaez' determination has paid off with a disputed victory over Johnny Bizzarro. Frankie's charges in the last three rounds enabled him to overhaul Bizzarro in the eyes of two of the three officials. As a result, Narvaez gained a split decision over Bizzarro from Erie, Pa., in their lively 10 rounder at MSG. The pro-Narvaez crowd of about 3,000 cheered everything the Puerto Rican did, including his many misses.
