WBC bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka will take on Anselmo Moreno in a rematch, while former double champion Hozumi Hasegawa will attempt to recapture a world title against Hugo Ruiz in a WBC super bantamweight bout on September 16, at Edion Arena Osaka, the organizers announced on Wednesday.

Yamanaka, 33, will look to defend his belt for the 11th time, but will face a tough challenge against the former WBA bantamweight champion, who arguably gave the Japanese star the toughest challenge of his title reign. Yamanaka edged the Panamanian in a split decision to retain his belt for the ninth straight time in Tokyo in last September.
