Giovani Segura To Return in The Fall, Wants WBO Shot

By Miguel Rivera

Former champion Giovani Segura (28-1, 24KOs) is planning to fight again in August or September against a yet to be determined opponent. He returned on Saturday in Teluca and knocked out Eddy Zuniga in the first round. Segura wants to gain a shot at the WBO flyweight championship. The current belt holder is Julio Cesar "Pingo" Miranda, who faces mandatory contender Brian Viloria on July 16 at the Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.

a niees bout won't be awesome...he'll be too small...he just went up to 108 and hasn't even challenged for that WBO belt + he's not a puncher....miranda would be better, in mx...
