WBC featherweight champion Hozumi Hasegawa is ready for a war. He defends the title against mandatory challenger, and former champion Jhonny Gonzalez, on Friday in Kobe, Japab. Hasegawa-Gonzalez is part of a WBC tripleheader at the venue. Last November Hasegawa went up by two weight divisions to beat Juan Carlos Burgos to capture the vacant belt.

‘‘Everything is going smoothly and I want to be in top condition by the day of the fight,’’ Hasegawa told Japan Today. ‘‘I have already fought once (for the featherweight title) and I know what I have got to do. (Gonzalez) is tall with a long reach and is a tricky opponent. I have been tuning up to make use of my speed."

Also on the show, WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka will be making his sixth title defense against sixth-ranked challenger Mauricio Munoz of Argentina, and WBC super featherweight champion Takahiro Aoh will take on Mexican Humberto Gutierrez, ranked third in the world. It will be the first time that three Japanese champions will defend their titles together at the same venue.

[quote=prboxingcotto]i go for gonzalez and for one reason if he wins he can unify with juanma because the japs dont come to the u.s so we wont get great matchups of the best fighting the best so just bring the belts to the u,s so we can see good fights and force the japs to come to the u.s and fi...

[QUOTE=Don Johnson]you have something against the Japanese or something? You root against Japanese fighters every time and you use a derogatory term. The word "Jap" is to the Japanese as "Spick" is to Hispanics, not a very pretty term to use. Even though I'm Japanese-American, I still take offen...
