On the scales both men came in at the divisional limit of 112lbs neither man looked particularly happy at the weigh in and Ioka certainly looked like he had extra weight he could lose if he wanted to.
For Ioka the bout serves as his 4th defense of the title and will see him look to end 2016 in style and make up for a relative frustrating few months, which has seen him being accused of tax evasion and having a bout with Juan Francisco Estrada fall by the wayside when Estrada chose to move to Super Flyweight.
As for Stamp the bout is his biggest so far, and could potentially turn the Thai teenager into a boxing star. He is however a clear under-dog and not many are fancying him to pick up the upset against the Osakan star, who is now a 3-weight world champion.
