According to The Athletic journalist Mike Coppinger, lightweight title contender (61.2 kg), 27-year-old Puerto Rican Felix Verdejo (27-1-0, 17 KO) will return to the ring December 12th.

Verdejo’s rival will be 31-year-old Japanese Masayoshi Nakatani (18-1-0, 12 KO), known to a wide audience, first of all, for the 12-round confrontation with the current division leader, American Teofimo Lopez in July last year.

“Sources say Felix Verdejo will fight Masayoshi Nakatani on December 12th on ESPN in a co-main event. Top Rank Vice President Carl Moretti has already confirmed the news that the deal is closed,” Coppinger wrote on Twitter.
