Melindo to face Yaegashi tonight in Tokyo, Japan


Milan "El Metodico" Melindo is scheduled to face the IBF World light flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi today, May 21st at Ariake Colosseum, Tokyo, Japan.

Melindo 29, said that it will be an easy fight. However Yaegashi is tough opponent and defeated some of the great fighters including Javier Mendoza, Edgar Sosa, Oscar Blanquet and Toshiyuki Igarashi so for sure Melindo will be tested tonight.
