Daigo Higa is a name you’ll want to remember. The undefeated 22-year-old improved to 15-0 (15 KOs) with a devastating stoppage of Moises Fuentes in just 2 minutes and 32 seconds.

Although Fuentes came into the fight having lost two of his last three fights, he avenged one of those defeats and had never been dominated in this fashion. The shorter Higa stunned him with a short right hook at the 1:15 mark. Fuentes was trapped on the ropes and absorbed several more right and left hooks before getting put down by a straight right to the body. He appeared to beat the count, but the referee waived off the contest amidst Fuentes’s protests.

Higa’s 15th straight knockout ties a national record for Japanese fighters. In addition, the win marks the second successful defense of his WBC World flyweight title. Fuentes falls to 25-5-1, having lost three of his last four bouts dating back to December 2016.
