The title was vacated by long time Filipino world champion Donnie 'Ahas' Nietes last September when he moved up in weight to campaign in the flyweight division.
Fuentes (24-2-1, 13KOs) previously held the WBO minimumweight world title and the WBO junior flyweight title in an interim capacity and was Nietes's mandatory challenger before Nietes decided to vacate the title.
The undefeated Tanaka has only 7 professional fights under his name but he won multiple titles as an amateur and won the WBO world minimumweight title in only his 5th fight against Mexican Julian Yedras on May 30, 2015 and successfully defended it against Filipino Vic Saludar on Dec. 31, 2015 when he stopped in the 6th round after he himself visited the canvas in the 5th round.
CBC Television has been broadcasting Tanaka's fights since he turned professional and in a statement said it is a "great opportunity for boxing fans all over the world to enjoy a great match for free."
