Hozumi Hasegawa Beats Burgos To Win Vacant WBC Belt

By Chris LaBate

At the Nihon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan, former WBC bantamweight champion Hozumi Hasegawa (29-3, 12KOs) moved up by two weight divisions to win a unanimous twelve round decision over previously undefeated Juan Carlos Burgos (25-1, 18KOs) to capture the vacant WBC featherweight title. The scores were 116-111, 117-110 and 117-110.

Hasegawa rebounds in a big way. In his last outing, an April bantamweight unification against Fernando Montiel, he was winning the fight until Montiel caught him with a huge hook in the fouth round and eventually stopped him.

The hook from Montiel broke Hasegawa's jaw. After healing the injury, he announced to the surprise of many in Japan that he was moving up by two weight divisions to challenge for another title.

[QUOTE=thephantom5;9669194]Would that be the biggest pro fight in Japanese history? Not counting Tyson-Douglas.[/QUOTE] Not a chance brother. Harada-Jofre, both times, in Japan. Hasegawa-Nishioka couldn't sniff that.

[QUOTE=jreckoning;9670576]I want that fight. If you watch the Lee fight, Poon was robbed. He won that shiit. If Montiel can crack that chin, I think Poon can.[/QUOTE] I thought Poon nicked it 115-114, but I don't think he was robbed.…

He was going for the KO. He got hit but he still looked good. Burgos had been in soft. Hope he has more sucesses from here on out. Japan took a beating the past year!

On a side note, I started to think warp1432 is Hasegawa only because he had that avatar of him so long. LOL.
