Photos: Yamanaka vs. Moreno II, Ruiz vs. Hasegawa Final Presser

By Hisao Adachi

The  medical examination for the fighters involved in the WBC title bouts this Friday were successfully conducted at the Edion Arena in Osaka.


The undefeated WBC bantamweight champion, Shinsuke Yamanaka, will be defending his crown in a rematch bout with Panamanian Anselmo 'Chemito' Moreno. While Hugo Ruiz will be defending his super bantamweight crown for the first time, against former world champion Hozumi Hasegawa.

The four fighters faultlessly sailed through the examinations.


Yamanaka is super confident prior to his clash. While the challenger, Moreno, commented that his motivation focuses upon gaining a full measure of revenge, following their initial clash of September 2015.

Ruiz commented he's very relaxed highlighting his meticulous strength preparation in Mexico.  Hasegawa stresses he's ready to win the fight big, and with ease.


The Yamanaka (25-0-2) vs. Moreno (36-4-1) and Ruiz (36-3) vs. Hasegawa (35-5) doubleheader will be promoted by promoter Mr. Honda of Teiken Boxing.

Anselmo Moreno is a master of boxing. He is way better than ****in Brook and others famous fighters but he fought in 118 pounds and doesn't have promotion.
