JAPAN UPDATE


BARROS BARELY DEFEATS HOSONO IN IBF 126LB ELIMINATOR IN JAPAN

October 3, 2016

TOKYO, JAPAN

Argentine ex-WBA champ Jonathan Barros was awarded a split decision (116-112, 117-111, 113-115) over Japanese warrior Satoshi gBazookah Hosono in an IBF featherweight eliminator to decide the next mandatory challenger against the titleholder Lee Selby (in attendance with his manager Chris Sanigar) over twelve hard-fought rounds on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The crafty Argentine will meet Selby with the IBF belt on the line, but he sustained a deep gash over the right eyebrow late in the bout, so he will be unlikely to have a mandatory shot at Selby within this year.
