Just several months after historically winning the WBC super bantamweight title by stopping Mexican Hugo Ruiz, Hozumi Hasegawa showed the common sense to call it a day while he was ahead, by hanging up his gloves for good, and he’s sticking to it.
With that superb victory, Hasegawa added to the titles he’d conquered at bantamweight and featherweight.
“I have come to dominate three different weight categories. My career has been better than I expected. Now I have nothing else to prove. I set the goal to be a world champion and to that I dedicated myself to that in body and mind.”
Since beginning his professional career in 1999, he has racked up 36 wins in 41 bouts, 16 of them by knockout.
A proud green and gold champion, who at the WBC’s fifty fourth Convention, which was Hollywood, Florida received a well-deserved tribute.
Lets Remember this very special accolade.
