Today the two men took part in the weigh in for the contest, and both men made the 105lb limit for the bout.
Konishi came in at the limit and looked in great shape, as expected. He stated he was in perfect condition and really did look like a young man who has worked hard to develop himself since winning the title last year.
As for Calleros things weren't straight forward. He did make the limit on the sclaes, but was 400g, around .9lbs, in a check weight weigh in before the official weigh in. He took the time between to sweat out the weight, and finally made weight naked. He stated it was hard to make weight in Japan, but that and that it was a miscalculation, though stated he and Luis Nery are different personalities, as if to explain why he could make weight and why Nery didn't for his recent rematch with Shinsuke Yamanaka.
For fans wanting to watch this bout it will be screened live on Fuji Next and Boxmob are also showing the fight as one of their PPV broadcasts.
