One man in the crowd for the bout was Japan's teak tough Nihito Arakawa (31-6-1, 18) [荒川 仁人], who was at the bout due to a potential world title bout against the winner.
Ranked #4 by the WBO in their latest rankings Arakawa is making his way towards a mandatory title fight, especially given that going in to the bout Beltran was the WBO's #1 contender and Moses as the #2. There is also a chance that Arakawa will be able to get a bout as a voluntary defense, and it seems likely that that may happen.
A bout between Beltran and Arakawa seems like the sort of fan friendly bout that would make for great TV and it seems clear that both men would be happy to have the bout. Both are exciting fighters and Arakawa is still remmebered in the US for his 2013 war with Omar Figueroa, which was regarded as the fight of the year in some circles.
Although Beltran did suffer some injuries to his face, which will need time to heal, it does seem like a bout between Arakawa and Beltran could take place later this year, with Japanese sources suggesting there is a very real chance of the contest being made as Beltran's first defense of his newly won title.
