Yeagashi sounded like a grizzled veteran who had seen it all before and came across as a man full of self beliel, as if he saw Melindo, a very talented as just another opponent. It was as if the champion's cnfidence had seen him already over-looked hi Filipino challenger, who was just the next oopponent of the champion.
As for Melindo he seemed confident as well and sttated he was in good conditiion and thta he was happy to fight a fighter like Yaegashi on the road in fact he was looking forward to the stylistic mash up of himself and the Japanese warror, and it's clear that Melindo will favour his chances of becoming the sole IBF champion at 108lbs.
Yaegashi and Melindo battle to unify IBF crown!
