When one of the tallest featherweights in history met one of the shortest.

This fight was a curiosity, to say the least. The challenger Nemoto was so short he only barely reached champion Pedroza's chest in height, and of course this short guy fought out of a crouch making him an even smaller target. Nemoto's stubby arms could never reach Pedroza so he had to charge in and take the fight inside. Pedroza abandoned his usual conventional jab and went for up-jabs instead because Nemoto was too short, even then his jab could not land with the usual authority and simply pecked away at Nemoto's gloves or forehead. In the end, Pedroza was able to tie Nemoto up in close-quarters and countering when Nemoto charged in. The skills and physicality was too much for Nemoto to overcome, but he did find some interesting ways to disguise the moment when he charged in.

In my opinion, a fight worth watching for just the absurd size difference and the accompanying unusual tactics.

You have to quit watching after the 13th, the video gets too bad.
