Today the two men weighed in and both made weight for the bout.
Tokunaga was the heavier man, coming in just under the Lightweight limit whilst Nishitani was about 1/2lb lighter, at just under 134.5lbs.
For Tokunaga his weight was as expected and around his usual, whilst Nishitani was actually close to his highest as a professional. Although both looked in good condition it's fair to say that Tokunaga, the natural Lightweight, did look much better than the challenger, who was showing signs of not quite being a natural 135lb fighter.
Tokunaga looks to end the year on top as he faces Nishitani
