Today however it's been revealed he has gone back to the Watanabe gym and has worked out, though it's unclear how intensive that work out was, or what shape he was in prior to getting back into the gym.
Taguchi's gym chairman Hitoshi Watanabe stated that he would have to talk to the fighter before getting a decision about what Taguchi wanted to do, but it does seem like there are 3 options.
One of those options is for Taguchi to not fight again. It would seem unlikely, given he's only 31, but isn't something that can be ruled out. Another option is that Taguchi returns at Light Flyweight, the division that he is a former world champion at. He's always looked like a fighter who would eventually out grow the 108lb division, and the loss to Budler could well be what makes him leave the division, but if he stays a rematch with Budler would make a lot of sense.
The third option is for Taguchi to move up in weight and begin campaigning at Flyweight. It's the option that seems the most likely, especially whilst the Flyweight division is going through one of it's worst runs in recent years.
Despite the 3 options there hasn't been a decision made yet and Taguchi had made it clear that he will announce hat he's doing, when he's ready to do so. Which makes it sound like he really hasn't made a decision on his future as of yet.
