Esquivel-Yamanaka for WBC title?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Reliable sources indicate the possibility that a fight between the Mexican Cristian Esquivel (24-2, 18 KOs) and Japan’s Shinsuke Yamanaka Japanese (14-0, 10 KOs) already announced as a WBC bantamweight title eliminator could be elevated to a bout for the WBC world title. This is if current WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire vacates the belts and moves up to super bantamweight as expressed Saturday after his win over Omar Narvaez. Esquivel and Yamanaka are lined up to meet November 6 at Yoyogi Gymnasium #2 in Tokyo, Japan.
