She looked like a fighter raring to go, and ready to get back to winning ways as she looks to begin a chase to another world title, and second potential reign as a queen of boxing.
As for Kanda she was even lighter, coming in at at 103lbs. This was heavier than she has been in some recent bouts, but is far from her career highest, and like Kuroki she also looked calm and relaxed.
