Hasegawa to return Dec 17

By Joe Koizumi

Having been dethroned by Jhonny Gonzalez via TKO route last April, ex-WBC feather and bantam champ Hozumi Hasegawa (29-4, 12 KOs), a Japanese southpaw speedster, will return to the ring warfare when he faces unbeaten Mexican Felipe Carlos Felix (18-0, 10 KOs) in Kobe, Japan, on December 17. It was announced by his manager/promoter/trainer Masato Yamashita. Hasegawa, 30, says, “I wish to enjoy fighting again by showing my own performance.” Also, his stablemate Yoshihito Ishizaki will cope with world-rated super-fly Johnny Garcia of Mexico on the undercard.
