This coming weekend we get the chance to see a new WBC Flyweight champion being crowned as Nawaphon Por Chokchai (36-0, 28) [นวพล นครหลวงโปรโมชั่น] battles with Mexican Juan Hernandez (33-2, 24) for the title vacant by Roman Gonzalez last year.
Today the two men under-went their medicals for the bout and both passed with no issues for the contest.
We've not been given a great deal of information from the medical but we have been informed that both men had identical blood pressure results, 120/80, whilst Nawaphon had a lower pulse rate, at 42 beats per minute compardd to Hernandez' 62 beats per minute.
From what we understand Nawaphon was the shorter man, but that wasn't unexpected and his team feel confident that their game plan will be effective against the battle hardened Mexican. Not only were they confident of picking up the win, but also in stopping the Mexican.
