Earlier today Japanese fans had the chance to see two world title fights on TV. Tomorrow they get more TV action with a brilliant looking WBC Youth Flyweight title fight between unbeaten champion Daigo Higa (8-0, 8) [比嘉 大吾] and once beaten Filipino challenger Romel Oliveros (6-1-1, 1).
For Higa the bout will be the second defense of the WBC Youth title that he won last year, stopping Kongfah CP Freshmart in what was the Japanese youngster's break out, whilst Oliveros will be taking part in his second title fight after having previously held a WBC regional title.
Today both men weighed in and both looked in incredible shape whilst making the 112lb limit on their first attempt.
The bout, which will be aired on G+ tomorrow morning, promises a lot of action and it seems that the champion is confident of scoring his 9th straight stoppage win, continuing not only his reign as the champion but also his perfect KO record.
