Hasegawa vs Burgos, Tajbert vs Aoh Catching Steam

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The announced doubleheader for November 26 at the Nihon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan is catching a lot steam from boxing fans in Japan and Mexico. The card will feature two important WBC title fights. The contests are tough to call as the boxers match up very well in each fight.

In first of the doubleheader, WBC super featherweight champion Vitali Tajbert (20-1, 6KOs) will defend his title against Japan's Takahiro Aoh (19-2, 9KOs). Aoh is a former WBC featherweight champion. He won the title in a rematch with Oscar Larios in March 2009 and lost the belt in his first defense against Elio Rojas in July of the same year.

The main event will be a battle for the vacant WBC featherweight title. The belt was declared vacant after Rojas suffered an injury that required surgery and lengthy recovery period. Former WBC bantamweight champion Hozumi Hasegawa (28-3, 12KOs) will rise by two weight divisions to face Juan Carlos Burgos (25-0, 18KOs). 

It is Hasegawa first bout since losing his title by knockout to Fernando Montiel in April. Hasegawa suffered a broken jaw in the fight. Burgos is up against the biggest and most experienced test in his undefeated career.

Hopefully, Burgos will rise to the occasion. This will be his first real step up in competition and it's in Hasegawa's home soil.

I cant see how this is a good move for Hasegawa. He just got a beating in his last fight and now he is gonna jump two divisions? Doesnt seem like a good idea for his career, I wont be…

Burgos is pretty big for the weight and Hasegawa will be moving up, I'll be interested to see how he deals with a guy longer and rangier than himself. Skillwise Hasegawa is a level or two above but the intangibles…

If Hasegawa is not right mentally or physically after that broken jaw I could see Burgos stopping him.
