In WBSS-finals he defeated with Nonito Donaire (40-6, 26 K. o.) even one of his personal heroes. In an Interview with the American Portal “” looked “Monster” well in the past as well as in the future.

About the duel against the “Filipino Flash” said he: “Donaire is a Boxing legend. The idea makes it for me impossible to say, how our Fight would go. Although I have a orbital bone fracture (fracture of the orbit, note. d. Red.) in the second round suffered, I tried to stay smart. I won on points. It was such a great Test for me.“ But also about the future plans of the Japanese Champ left out: “I think I have several options to choose from. A Unification fight for the WBO title, the rise of a weight class, etc. I will discuss with my Team and my decision.“
