Daigo, who in his most recent fight knocked out Thomas Masson in the seventh round, commented: "I will have to dedicate myself  to punishing  him bit by bit so I can knock him out in the first half of the fight."

Higa knows that Fuentes was knocked out in the fifth round by undefeated  Kosei Tanaka (now 10-0, 6KOs, 22 years old) in December 2016 in Gifu, Japan. So Daigo Higa will try to knock out Fuentes from the very beginning of the fight.

For his part, Moises commented: "I did a great training camp. We know about the danger of Higa, but we fully trust in the work done and in the experience that we have, and I am fully confident that I will return to Mexico with the green and gold belt ".
