Boxing Result

Hasegawa wins WBC feather belt

By Joe Koizumi

Former WBC bantam champ Hozumi Hasegawa (29-3, 12 KOs), 125.75, acquired the vacant WBC featherweight belt as he jumped up two divisions and defeated previously unbeaten Mexican Juan Carlos Burgos (25-1, 18 KOs), 125.75, by a unanimous decision (117-110 twice and 116-111) over twelve hard-fought rounds on Friday in Nagoya, Japan,

Hasegawa sometimes overcame tough moments and remained aggressive, steadily piling up points to show his superiority in ring experience and counterpunching. But Burgos finely displayed his talents, heart and gameness against the Japanese hero who thus conquered a couple of championships. Hasegawa will be obliged to face Jhonny Gonzalez in his initial defense due to the WBC’s order. (More to come)
