Tomorrow Japanese fans get an interesting card at the Korakuen Hall, and live on NTV G+. Whilst the card doesn't feature any massive bouts it does feature several bouts of note including the ring return of 40 year former world title challenger Motoki Sasaki (39-10-1, 24) [佐々木 基樹] who faces the significantly younger Tatsuya Miyazaki (8-7-1, 8) [宮崎 辰也] in an 8 rounder.
Today those two men weighed in for their bout, which has been contracted at 140lbs.
At the weigh in Sasaki was in great shape weighing in just over 139lbs. He was looking great for a man who hadn't fought since May in 2013, when he lost a bout to Yoshitaka Kato for the JBC and OPBF Lightweight titles.
Miyazaki was the slightly heavier man at the weigh in weighing in at 139¾lbs. Although the more limited fighter Miyazaki did seem confident and is the much younger man at just 31.
