After mixed results at featherweight, Hozumi Hasegawa has decided to move down to super bantamweight in search of becoming a three-weight 'world' champion. The 31-year old Hasegawa (30-4, 13KOs), who rose to prominence for his five year streak as WBC bantamweight champion from 2005 to 2010, will have his first fight in this new weight class on December 22 in Kobe, Japan. The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds and an opponent is to be announced in the near future.
His opponent is WBC #13 Arturo Santos Reyes (12-2, 4KOs), who is most known for dropping a split decision to Fernando Montiel back in June. His last fight was a handy win over Khabir Suleymanov.
Hasegawa-Reyes is supported by the aforementioned Tunacao-Esquivel contest.

Isn't Mcdonnell mandatory for Leo?
I think he is mate, but I think they can get some sort of dispensation for mandatory fights if they take part in a unification fight?
