Tomorrow fight fans in Japan will get the chance to see IBF Minimumweight champion Jose Argumedo (20-3-1, 12) defending against fast rising Japanese destroyer Hiroto Kyoguchi (7-0, 6) [京口 紘人] in a bout that looks genuinely mouth watering.
Today, ahead of the bout, the two men took part in their weigh in and signing ceremony, which saw both men make weight and have a little bit of fun.
The champion came in the lighter man, coming in around 103.75lbs, but looked in amazing shape for what will be his 4th defense of the title. He promised a war at the press conference and looked full of confidence, stating that he wasn't going to lose the title that he had taken at the end of 2015 against Katsunari Takayama.
Kyoguchi came in on the division limit, and although not quite boasting the ripped abs of Argumedo looked in fantastic shape as well. He, unlike Argumedo, stated that he didn't want to have a war, going as far as to say he was a fan of world peace in a moment of playful humour.
With both men in great shape the bout is expected to be a thriller, whether Kyoguchi wants peace or not, we can't help but think this bout will be something a little bit special.
