The all action Yaegashi was last seen in the ring on December 30th when he was stopped by Pedro Guevara in a bout for the WBC Light Flyweight title. That was his second successive loss following a 9th round TKO defeat to the fabulous Roman Gonzalez last September, in a bout at Flyweight.
Yaegashi is continuing to pursue the hopes of becoming a 3 weight world champion. He has previously held both the WBA Minimumweight and WBC Flyweight titles. Sadly it's going to be a difficult task to win a title at 115lbs where stablemate Naoya Inoue (8-0, 7) looks to be the emerging kingpin.
No opponent or date has yet been set for Yaegashi's next bout.
