Daigo Higa will have his suspension lifted by the Japan Boxing Commission after he had to forfeit his WBC flyweight belt for failing a weigh-in for his title defense last spring, sources said Saturday.

According to the sources, an official announcement is expected soon after the JBC ethics committee agreed to lift the ban in response to an application by Higa and Yoko Gushiken, chairman of the Shirai Gushiken Sports Gym.
