A press conference of the world title twinbill took place at the Tokyo Dome Hotel on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan.

In the semi-windup, WBC 108-pound ruler Shiro Ken will defend his belt against former champ Ganigan Lopez of Mexico in their revancha (rematch). Their comments were as follows:

Inoue: “McDonnell is the strongest opponent in my career. I’m happy to challenge him to win my third world belt. Moving up to the bantamweight class my physical condition has improved so greatly that I feel more comfortable and fit. I’ll show a good performance and score a fine victory.”

McDonnell: “I believe I’m the best bantamweight on the planet. When there’s a formidable opponent, I’ll go and prove I’m the best. My condition is very fine and I’ll successfully defend my belt.”

Ken: “Last time in our first encounter I won by a majority decision. I wish to score a victory again more clearly this time by a knockout, hopefully.”

Lopez: “I’ve come back to Japan to regain my belt.”

Julio Jr. encourages Omar Chavez after loss

Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has encouraged his younger brother Omar “Businessman” Chavez on social media after Omar’s loss this past weekend to Jose Carlos Paz.

Omar Chavez: I want to make a sincere apology to the people who supported me. To those who crucify me for having lost, God bless them, I will continue! Not that I don’t see things, I’m aware of everything and I’ll train harder, and I won’t remain seated for my fights or my career.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr: Do not apologize! See that you failed and work harder on that. Grasp what you don’t like doing. And don’t fight to look good to anyone. Your fights are always good! It’s your career and you decide what to do with it. Pay more attention to your technique and don’t want to win with one punch and you will be champion.

Omar Chavez: Thank you, brother, for being with me in the good times and in the bad ones. I will try to improve in that, thanks.

Omar Chavez: It may not be like my father who came to 89-0 but there are many other fighters who lost at the start of their career and are now legend. The war was lost but not the battle. I’ll be back soon and better!

Budler-Taguchi Full Report/Photo Gallery

South African Hekkie Budler (32-3, 10 KOs), 108, upset WBA/IBF 108-pound champ Ryoichi Taguchi (27-3-2, 12 KOs), 108, as he took the leadoff in earlier rounds, withstood the champ’s retaliation in later rounds and survived a knockdown in the final session to be awarded a hairline unanimous decision over twelve hard-fought rounds on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan.

The scores were very identical with all 114-113 by Mike Fitzgerald (US), Neville Hotz (South Africa) and Katsuhiko Nakamura (Japan). The third man was Samuel Williams (US).

Taguchi, making his eighth defense of the WBA belt and his initial defense of the IBF title, was a prefight favorite, but Budler, ex-WBA 105-pound ruler, was in command with his Lomachenko-like shifty mobility and quick combinations in the first half. Taguchi, a slower starter, turned loose from the sixth on, but Budler gamely responded to the champ’s retaliation although the tide turned in Taguchi’s favor in later rounds.
