Earlier today WBC Bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka (26-0-2, 18) [山中慎介] and up coming challenger Carlos Carlson (22-1, 13) took part in their medical for their bout, later this week.
Both men passed the medical without any real issues, and both were also very similar in terms physical meassurements with almost idential reach, height and girth measurements.
Despite the similar statures few are giving Carlson much of a chance and the champion is a huge betting favourite to retain his title, and record his 12th defense.
