WBC featherweight title: Takahiro Aoh vs. Elio Rojas

Newly crowned WBC featherweight champ Takahiro Aoh, a Japanese southpaw fighter that will risk his belt against the challenger Elio Rojas in his first defense in Tokyo, Japan, on July 14. Aoh, formerly six-time national high school champ, impressively captured the throne via lopsided decision over veteran Mexican warrior Oscar Larios in a grudge fight last March.

In a press conference, Aoh said “I welcome this opportunity to defend my belt against the strong challenger. I’ll fight as if I were a challenger.” This could be a good fight seeing Japanese boxers dominate world titles in this sport.
