Former world champion Takahiro Ao will no longer by facing Alan Herrera on the November 10th Teiken super card but will instead by facing Edgar Alejandro Lomeli.
Lomeli, who boasts a record of 14-3-2 (8), is on paper an easier contest than Herrera was. He's not as talented, as experienced or as tough as Herrera though it does seem to be more about keeping Ao busy before the former 2-weight world champion mounts another world title charge.
Ao, currently ranked #8 by the WBC at Lightweight and #6 by the WBO at Super Featherweight, looks almost certain to compete on the world stage again. Saying that however he cannot afford to look past Lomeli who will be traveling to Japan with an upset in his mind a big opportunity to score a career defining victory.
