To prepare for that bout Wake is currently training in the Philippines, at the Omega gym, taking part in a really tough and high quality training camp.
At the moment the weather in the Philippines is very hot and humid, and it seems like those conditions affected the movement of the Japanese fighter, but he seemed to suggest that the conditions were good for training and that he wouyld get used to them soon.
The former former OPBF Super Bantamweight champion will be fully aware that his upcoming bout is a must win one, at least if he's to get another world title fight. With that in mind it's little wonder he is taking away his home comforts to trainer harder and push himself in hard conditions. Saying that however he isn't just training in hard conditions, but also sparring with very good fighters, and will likely learn from that sparring, as well as getting himself into fantastic condition.
