Today we were informed of another brilliant proposed bout for the same show. That is a bout between former 2-weight world champion Akira Yaegashi (22-5, 12) against heavy handed IBF Light Flyweight champion Javier Mendoza (24-2-1, 19), a bout that really could provide us with a FOTY contender to end 2015.
A fight between Mendoza and Yaegashi would give Yaegashi a great opportunity to become a 3-weight world champion, claiming a Light Flyweight title on his second shot at, whilst it would give Mendoza a fantastic chance to expand his profile and it would give fight fans a guaranteed barn burner.
It is worth noting that the same source also included a story that stated WBC Bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka (24-0-2, 17) may be defending his title against Alejandro Hernandez (30-11-2, 16). We suspect that wires have been crossed here with Yamanaka not expected on the show, however Hernandez maybe lined up as a possible opponent for Ryo Matsumoto (15-0, 13), who is expected top appear on the card.
At the moment the details regarding the show are still "sketchy" but it also seems likely that Takuma Inoue (5-0, 1) will defend his OPBF Super Flyweight title on the show.
