One of the many interesting bouts taking place tomorrow sees a potential FOTY candidate between Yoshihiro Kamegai (26-3-2, 23) [亀海喜寛] and Jesus Soto Karass (28-10-4, 18), who also took part in a thriller earlier this year.
Earlier today the two men took part in their weigh in and both came in around the Light Middleweight limit.
Kamegai was the lighter man weighing 153.4lbs. The weight is much higher than he started his career at, as he began his career as a Light Welterweight, however it is very similar to his weight from his last two bouts, including the first bout with Soto Karass.
The Mexican came in a full 1lb heavier than the Japanese warrior, weighing 154.4lbs for the bout. The weight is one of the heaviest of Karass' career, in fact it's the heaviest he's been since 2005 when he came in at 156.5lbs and 156.lbs for successive bouts and is 1lb heavier than he was in the first meeting with Kamegai.
Both looked solid at the weigh in and neither appears to have drained down too much for their weight meaning they will be fighting fit tomorrow and should engage in another all out war.
