Teiken Promotions has announced today (Monday) to stage a tripleheader in Tokyo on November 6, as follows: WBC super-feather champ Takahiro Aoh (21-2-1, 10 KOs), a Japanese southpaw, will put his belt on the line against unbeaten Italian Devis Boschiero (29-0-1, 14 KOs) in the main event. Supporting are WBC final eliminators in the bantamweight and flyweight categories. WBC#3 bantam, unbeaten Shinsuke Yamanaka (14-0-2, 10 KOs) will square off against WBC#2 Silver champ Christian Esquivel (23-2, 17 KOs) over twelve. Also, WBC#3 fly and ex-Olympian Toshiyuki Igarashi (14-1-1, 10 KOs) will take on Wilbert Uicab (33-5-1-1NC, 18 KOs), Mexico, over twelve. The three Japanese participants are all southpaws. We look forward to watching hot affairs at the Yoyogi No.2 Gymnasium in the center of Tokyo. (Photo: From left: Igarashi, Aoh and Yamanaka)
