Hiromu Takahashi relinquished the Junior Title after the news broke that he suffered a torn left pectoral muscle back in February.
While speaking to Tokyo Sports, Takahashi confirmed that he underwent successful surgery.
“It seems that after about 3 months, it will completely stick together and return to 90%. The remaining 10% depends on the practice, so I want to go home with 100% or more. It was said that it was a month, but the injury itself will heal in 3 months. It will take about half a year for me to return to the ring, so it’s an injury.”
