Former WBC bantamweight champ Hozumi Hasegawa was released from hospital on Friday in Kobe, Japan, three days after undergoing surgery on his broken jaw.
Hasegawa’s jaw was broken during his knockout defeat to Mexican WBO bantamweight king Fernando Montiel in Tokyo two weeks ago.
Hasegawa said after leaving hospital. ‘‘I want to resume my training as soon as possible.’’
