On Wednesday the two men took part in their weigh in and and both made weight whilst looking in great condition for the bout, which is a rematch between the two men.
Coming into the bout Kogawa will be seeking the first defence of the title he claimed, for the second time, whilst Hayashi will be hoping to claim the Japanese title at the third time of asking, having previously come up short against against both Kogawa and Suguru Muranaka.
Notably the winner of this will be expected to make a mandatory defense in early 2016 against Masayuki Kuroda as part of the Champions Carnival, in what would likely be another brilliant match up.
