We won't pretend the sparring was anything sensational but after the spar Akaho hinted that his next bout would indeed be a world title bout.
It's no real surprise if Akaho does get a world title fight next time out, given his WBO ranking, though the interesting thing is who he will be fighting. There is a possibility that he will be facing #2 ranked contender Pungluang Sor Singyu, who scored his 50th win yesterday when he defeated Nouldy Manakane, though at the moment the WBO have yet to announce what they will be doing in regards to the vacant title position.
For those who remember the WBO Bantamweight title was recently vacated by Tomoki Kameda, ahead of this weekend's showdown with Jamie McDonnell, following the WBO sending a letter to Tomoki regarding their championship rules. In that letter they made it clear that McDonnell was not what they considered a ranked contender nor the "WBA" champion.
Interestingly Akaho seemed to suggest that he was happy to travel for the title fight. Possibly hinting at a return to the Philippines, where he fought earlier this year, or a fight in enemy territory, possibly Thailand.
