Today the two men weighed in, with both making the 154lb limit for the bout.
On the scales the shorter, more experienced, Hosokawa was just under the limit and looked a little bit fleshy for the bout. Although fleshy he was comfortable looking and certainly seemed confident of record his second defense and utting on a good performance following a very poor outing last time out.
The much taller Oishi, who looked much better at the weight than the champion, was well under the limit at just below 153¾lbs, but naturally he seemed a much bigger fighter than Hosokawa who actually very under-sized for the weight.
For fans wanting to watch this bout it will be added to the Boxingraise website on demand service after the fight has taken place.
