Following the inability to make weight Hiroto has been essentially kicked out of the gym that he fought for, with Kadoebi announcing that they had banned him from March 28th. The gym stated that failing to make weight severely damages the social credibility of boxing, which is based on a weight class system.
Whilst fighters have been punished by the JBC for failing to make weight, as we saw recently with the JBC giving Luis Nery an indefinite ban, it's very rare for a gym to punish their fighters like this, though it does now seem like Japanese boxing is taking weigh ins very seriously.
It seems like the JBC will themselves punish Hiroto for missing weight, and may also punish Kadoebi, though the gym's stance is something that is admirable here, and could help set the mark for how gyms treat fighters who fail to make weight going forward. Sadly it does seem like we're having more and more fighters failing to make weight, and it's becoming an all too common occurence in boxing around the globe.
