Linares vacates setting up twin bill in Japan

By Anson Wainwright

It has been reported out of Japan that Jorge “El Nino De Oro” Linares 25-0(16) has vacated his WBC Featherweight title to campaign at 130 from know on.

The fall out from that see’s the man he beat for the title grizzled veteran Oscar Larios 62-6-1(39) who is currently the Interim champion due to Linares being injured since last December being made upto full champion. He will defend his title against another Teikken fighter Takahiro Aoh 16-0-1(8) on 16 October in Tokyo at Yoyogi First Gym .

Also on the card long time WBC Bantamweight champion Hozumi Hasegawa 24-2(8) makes his seventh defence against his mandatory challenger from Mexico Alejandro Valdez 21-2-1(15).

In the featherweight battle much will be expected of Southpaw Aoh 24 who is well though of in Japan and comes off a draw with unbeaten countryman Hiroyuki Enoki.

Aoh will likely be favoured to beat Larios who is currently banded from fighting in America due to irregular test results from a brain scan after his loss to Linares last July.

Hasegawa 27, faces a tough test in Valdez who’s managed by savvy Frank Espinosa current manager of Isreal Vazquez.
