New foe for Hasegawa

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Looks like WBC bantamweight world champion Hozumi Hasegawa will not be defending against former world champion Eric Morel, whose prior legal troubles are causing problems in obtaining a visa. Hasegawa’s new challenger is WBC #12 rated Álvaro Pérez (18-1-1, 12 KOs) and the bout is planned for December 18 in Kobe, Japan. Hasegawa (27-2, 11 KOs) won the title in April 2005 against legendary Veeraphol Sahaprom and already has carried out nine defenses, the last four not going beyond two rounds. Perez is a member of the Nicaraguan PRODESA stable and is training in Managua, Nicaragua.
