Instead of doing what most fighters do and testing herself against fighters a division up Fujioka jumped from 105lbs to 115lbs and took on the heavy handed Naoko Yamaguchi and really made it look easy as she clearly beat her compatriot, the then WBA female champion at Super Flyweight. It was real proof that Fujioka was simply on her own with her skills, speed, power and IQ being far beyond that of her domestic rival. It was, if proof, if was ever needed, that she was a special fighter.
We hope you enjoy this masterclass by one of female boxing's most talented individuals who proved that size alone wasn't enough to over-come exceptional skills.
