Moises Fuentes is Training For a War With Daigo Higa

Former champion Moises Fuentes, who holds a respectable record (25-4-1, 14KO`s), is training very hard for the greatest challenge of his career, against formidable undefeated dangerous puncher WBC flyweight champion Daigo Higa (14-0, 14 knockouts), on February 4th in Japan.
 
"We are training so hard for this fight, to bring the WBC green and gold belt back to Mexico," pledges Fuentes. 

Along with his trainer, Alejandro "Pollo" Galindo, Moises has devised a strategy aimed at denting the up to now perfect record of the rising Japanese star.

This could be the final world title opportunity for Fuentes, who's had his ups and down in world title fights over the course of his career.

"Daigo is a fine boxer. We also know that he is a very powerful puncher. But the beauty of boxing is that we all have a chance to win. So I`ll arrive in the greatest physical condition," Fuentes said.
 
"I was the WBC youth world champion. It's therefore an honor for me to fight for the absolute World Boxing Council belt. The Green and Gold title is a dream and career culmination wish of all boxers. I dedicate this fight to all those who have always supported me. I especially thank Mauricio Sulaiman, President of the WBC, for supporting me in this fantastic opportunity."
