Undefeated WBC World flyweight champion Daiga Higa (15-0, 15 KOs) kept his perfect knockout record intact in stopping #9 WBC challenger Moises Fuentes (25-5-1, 14 KOs) in the 1st round on Sunday night in Naha, Okinawa, Japan.

The 22-year-old Higa landed a crushing right hand to the midsection of the fringe contender Fuentes to put him down on his hands and knees on the canvas. Fuentes was able to beat the count, but the referee Len Koivisto chose to halt the fight anyway.

The official time of the stoppage was at 2:32 of round 1.

The fight was expected to be a mismatch anyway, but it wasn’t supposed to be a 1 round job. Fuentes fought the wrong kind of fight for him to last more than 1 round.

The victory for Higa was his second successful title defense of his World Boxing Council flyweight title. Higa previously stopped Thomas Masson (17-3-1) in the 7th round last October.
