Today the two men took part in their physical examination, and much like the first time around the two wee very similarly matched physically.
The measurements taken showed Murata beign 2.5cm taller than N'Dam, with the Frenchman having a 0.5cm reach advantage, whilst the Japanese fighter boasted slightly thicker neck and chest measurements.
Although the two fighters are physically very similar they do have very different styles, as we saw in their first bout back in May. N'Dam is the more natural boxer-mover, who uses the ring, whilst Murata is the more calculated aggressor, pressing the fight and coming forward.
Although much was made of the decision in their first fight, with N'Dam taking a very debatable split decision, there seemed to be no animosity between the two fighters, who have always shown each other great respect and seem to see Sunday's fight as the next chapter in their careers, and the next step towards a potential super fighter in 2018.
