Today the two fighters took part in their way in, and managed to pass.
On the scales Kuroki was the heavier fighter, weighing in at 107.75lbs in what was a wonderfully seasonal outfit showing that she's well and truly in the Christmas spirit. The fighter seemed incredibly relaxed and like a woman happy to get such a big fight, and such an opportunity to shine. She does have every reason to be so happy given the way her career has turned around, and the great she's currently on, with this being her 6th defense. Despite looking like she was having fun it's clear that she is fully aware of what Koseki brings to the ring, and knows she will have to rely on her skills to win here.
A much more serious Koseki was way under the limit, coming in at around 103.6lbs. The seriousness of Koseki showed not only on her face but also in general demeanour and it was clear she had been scouting Kuroki for this bout, noting tge champion's good left hand. She also stated she would be fighting aggressively and it seems likely she will be trying to handcuff Kuroki with his offense and tyr to break down the champion.
