Japanese world title challenger Atsushi Kakutani (13-3-1, 6 KOs) left Osaka for Mexico city on Monday to challenge WBC light-flyweight champ Adrian “El Confesor” Hernandez (27-2-1, 16 KOs) at the Gimnasio San Juan de la Barrera on this coming Saturday.


Kakutani was accompanied by his manager Hideo Kanazawa (ex-OPBF junior middleweight champ) and his trainer Jinduk Kim. There was a rumor that Kakutani had suffered an injury would not be able to fight Hernandez but it wasn’t true as the Japan Boxing Commission (JBC) promptly sent its medical certificate to the WBC and the Mexican promoter, saying that Kakutani should be well-conditioned without any injury.
