Takahiro Aoh vs Juan Carlos Salgado Unification Explored?

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

According to sources in Mexico, there is some discussion regarding a possible unification between IBF super featherweight champion Juan Carlos Salgado (25-1-1, 16KOs) of Mexico and WBC king Takahiro Aoh (23-2-1, 10KOs) of Japan.

Aoh captured the title in November 2010 and made three defenses of the belt.

No stranger to fighting in Japan, Salgado traveled to the country in 2009 and destroyed Jorge Linares to win the WBA's version of the title. He lost the belt in his first defense against Takashi Uchiyama in 2010. He won the vacant IBF title in September 2011 with a decision win over Argenis Mendez in September 2011.

Too bad Japan doesn't believe in the IBF

Aoh has talent, but his conditioning has been horrible and the last time he looked really good was in the first and second Larios fight. He needs to find a good conditioning coach, it's pathetic almost. I can't see him…
