Today those two men took part in their pre-fight medical tests and measurements. Those sadly were rather worrying for Higa who was towered over by his upcoming challenger, though he did seem just as confident and self assured as he usually does.
The measurements showed that Fuentes had an staggering 9cm height advantage over Higa,despite the fact that it's Fuentes who had first made his name at Minimumweight, and had later fought at Light Flyweight and looked drained there.
Fuentes not only had a significant height advantage over Higa but also a reach one. In fact Fuentes had a 6cm reach advantage to along side his height one. Despite that it did seem like Higa had his usual attitude and suggested that he wasn't just looking to win, but to score a KO help raise his profile. Rather than just being a world champion he seemed likehe wanted to chase greatness and make a name for himself.
