Today those two fighters took part in their physical for the up coming bout and both men looked in great condition for the bout. Sadly for Tanaka though he didn't look like a Light Flyweight compared to Fuentes who was significantly taller and much longer than the unbeaten Japanese fighter.
Fuentes, a 31 year old veteran of the ring, was more than 2" taller than Tanaka and 4" longer than the Japanese fighter who will have to find a way to neutralise the size difference when they get in the ring. Notably though Tanaka and his team seem to believe the speed that Tanaka has will be the key advantage for their man and allow him to land on Fuentes and get out of range.
