Today the two men took part in their wiegh in for the bout, which will take place at Light Welterweight, and both made weight simple enough.
Although the bout is a step up for Inoue he looks to be seeing the bout as a chance to make a statement, and it's clear that he will be looking to impress the Ohashi gym chairman Hideyuki Ohashi. If he can impress Ohashi there is a chance that Ohashi will actively chase a title fight for Inoue, who has eyes on winning titles before the end of 2017.
Going in as the under-dog Fujita knows there is little pressure on his shoulders, though with no pressure he may well shine and could, potentially, be a banana skin for the touted Inoue.
The bout, although not televised live, is expected to be featured on the upcoming Diamond Glove telecast on Fuji TV.
