Sixth in the AMB ranking will replace Ghanaian Sina Agbeko, who had problems with his work visa to enter the United States.

“I was on my 40-day standby, when I signed the contract, but I couldn’t announce it to anyone. I’ve been training hard here in Florida (USA) and I’m ready to put up a great fight. I’m going to take my own (the belt). I’m not an underdog, I’m the champion,” said Yamaguchi, who is already in Las Vegas.

Morrell x Falcão will be one of the qualifiers for the fight between lightweight Americans Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia, one of the most anticipated duels today. “I’m smiling from ear to ear. I’m so happy. I’m in my best moment. Brazil will have a new boxing world champion. I was just waiting for my chance,” said the 35-year-old. The old boxer, the owner of the cartel, has 24 victories (ten knockouts), one draw and one loss. Morel is younger. He is 25 years old and has eight wins, with seven by knockout. One detail: they are both left-handed.

“I don’t know Muriel in training, but I saw him in person. I am Yamaguchi Falcao and my best victory was against the Cubans. I will have what is mine. What God promised me. I always dreamed and believed that I would be a World Cup champion. You can write there: Yamaguchi Falcao , the new world champion from Brazil. I really believe in my potential.”


Esquiva Falcão is Yamaguchi’s younger brother. Boxing is also his passion. She was silver in London in 2012. Ranks first among middleweights (up to 72.575 kilograms) from the International Boxing Federation (FIB).

Top Rank, the American company that has been looking after his career for a decade, should announce in the next few days the place and date of the title fight, which will be against the German Vincenzo Gualtieri.

“I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for a long time and I’m not going to let it slip away,” said Esceva, who is traveling to California on May 2, where he will finish training at famed coach Robert Garcia’s academy. .

According to the Brazilian boxer, the fight will take place in the United States at the end of June or the beginning of July. At the age of 33, Esquiva is undefeated as a professional, with 30 wins, 20 of them by knockout.

Robson Conceicao should get his third chance to be world champion by the end of the year. Gold medalist at Rio 2016, the boxer from Bahia takes on a fight scheduled for May 13, against Dominican Nicolas Polanco, in Stockton, US. Eleventh in the World Boxing Organization, Robson twice contested the title, but lost in 2021 to Mexican Oscar Valdez, in a hotly contested decision, and last year’s American Shakur Stephenson, also on points. The Brazilian, who travels to the United States on the 8th, is 34 years old and has a record of 17 wins and eight knockouts plus two defeats.

Esquiva, Robson, and Yamaguchi have contracts with American companies. The title dispute would increase the bank account of the three fighters, who were given a “gauntlet” upon signing the contract, as well as receiving a scholarship for each fight they fought.

The trio hopes to set their name alongside some of the great national boxing legends and athletes, such as Eder Joffre, Miguel de Oliveira, Aselino “Bobo Freitas”, Valdemir “Sirtão” Pereira, Rose Volante and Patrick Teixeira, the Brazilian world champions in the noble art.
