Today the two fighters took part in their weigh in and both fighters managed to make the 126lb limit, though did like fighters who belonged in very different divisions.
On the scales Amagasa, who is best known for his world title bout against Guillermo Rigondeaux, made the 126lb limit dead on, whilst towering over his Filipino foe. Looking at the two men it looked as if the Japanese fighter was 3, if not 4 divisions bigger than the visitor.
Notably Pumicpic, who is fighting in Japan for the 4th time but still seeking his first win in the country, came in comfortably under the limit, at around 125.5lb. Although he is without a win in Japan he has pushed close in all 3 of his previous visits, fighting to a draw with Yohei Tobe, giving hell to current world champion Ryosuke Iwasa and Hikaru Matsuoka a very tough bout.
For fans interested in watching this contest it will be featured on A-sign boxing as part of their next Asign Bee show.
