Japanese Scene: Hasegawa, Nishioka & Ao in April Tripleheader

Sidney Boquiren has news of a coming tripleheader from Japan featuring a very intriguing main-event.

According to Yomiuri Online, three of Japan’s top fighters will participate in a tripleheader this spring. Hozumi Hasegawa, Toshiaki Nishioka, and Takahiro Ao are set to defend their titles on April 8 at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan.

Opponents were also announced and clearly Hasegawa’s fight will be most anticipated, as he will face Mexican star Jhonny Gonzalez. The smooth southpaw made a successful comeback in November, moving up two weight classes and claimed the WBC featherweight crown with a unanimous decision over previously undefeated Juan Carlos Burgos. Just seven months prior to the jump, Hasegawa suffered a surprisingly abrupt stoppage loss at the hands of Fernando Montiel.

The Teiken tandem of Nishioka and Ao meet with Mauricio Munoz and Humberto Gutierrez respectively.
