On the scales the champion was 112lbs and looked amazing, ripped to shreds and more like a body builder than a boxer. His struggled to make 112lbs have been well reported in the past and given his thick muscular frame it's perhaps no surprise that a move to 115lbs has been rumoured. He stated that he had struggled after the weigh in for his last bout and it seems like he is changing how he goes about things between weigh in and fight time.
As for Fuentes he was comfortably under the limit, at 111.6lbs, and looked self assured, confident and in fantastic condition. He towered over Higa at the weigh in and looked like he was more comfortable at Flyweight than he had been at Light Flyweight, which is the weight he competed at last time he was in Japan and was stopped by Kosei Tanaka.
Talking about Tanaka he was at the weigh in and offered encouragement to Higa, whilst also speaking about his win over Fuentes, from back in 2016.
