Today the two men met for their physical, their first meeting since Ken Shiro took a majority decision over Lopez to claim the title.
At the medical Ken Shiro taunted Lopez by suggesting he looked like an "old man", though Lopez did return fire by suggesting that the old man will win.
At the medical the two fighters had measurements taken and the two were very similar in size, with Lopez having the slight edges in reach, 2cm, neck thickness, also 2cm, and chest thickness, 6cm.
Although the slightly bigger man Lopez is 10 years older than the champion, at 36 years old, and he does have significant wear and tear due to a 36 fight career over almost 15 years, something that Ken Shiro doesn't have.
