Fuentes: Beating Daigo Higa Will Be Tough - But Not Impossible!

Former world champion, Moises Fuentes is already designing the strategy together with his coach Alejandro Galindo, for his important clash on February 4 in Japan, where he will face world champion Daigo Higa, for the World Boxing Council championship at 112 pounds.

Fuentes knows very well that in this contest mistakes can not be allowed and for that very reason he's has paid a lot of attention to the boxing qualities of his opponent.

"A tough fight, tough, difficult, but not impossible, I'm a tough fighter, a boxer with knockouts, I'm going against an undefeated champion, fourteen wins with the same number of knockouts, but he has not faced a boxer like me, a boxer-puncher that goes to the front and there I have the possibility to and we are going to win, God willing," Fuentes said.

Fuentes says he has not neglected anything at the time of being in the gym.

"I have had a strong training camp in December and I need January to be the same, so we are going to arrive well, we are not going to do to way too much or lack anything either. I think we are going to arrive exactly on point and I have confidence. He is a boxer who is made for me, because of his style and God willing we're going to get ahead," Fuentes said.

The former world champion in the minimumweight and flyweight divisions, is sparring many rounds with a bantamweight boxer.

"At the moment we are training with Julio Cesar Martínez, who hits hard, he is a knockout artist, and has a similar style to the Japanese champion. We are going through a very hard preparation," Fuentes said.

He believes that the fight against Higa will be more of a give and take battle.

"It's going to come down to whoever is going to fall first. Everyone has gone against Higa with fear and too much respect. I am going to beat him with everything I've got," Fuentes said.
