As we're sure you're all aware there's a big show in Osaka tomorrow with several notable bouts, including a brilliant WBA Flyweight title bout, an interesting IBF Minimumweight title bout and a fantastic Japanese Super Flyweight title bout. That's not the only good looking show in Japan tomorrow though and more than 300 miles away in Tokyo fans also have a great card to head to.
The Tokyo card, held at the popular Korakuen Hall, features several really interesting match ups though the main event could well be the best of the bunch as former Japanese Lightweight champion Akihiro Kondo (21-5-1, 10) takes on recent OPBF Lightweight title challenger Ricky Sismundo (27-8-1, 12) in a bout made at 62KG (between 136½lbs and 136¾lbs).
Although we've not been given the specifics on the weights of the two men we have been informed that both men made the weight, though from what we under-stand Kondo did need a second weigh in for the bout having coming in slightly over the contracted limited on his first attempt.
The bout is scheduled for 8 rounds though promises a lot with both fighters being tough but limited guys who enjoy a fight rather than a boxing contest. Neither is the most consistent of fighters but they should make for a great match up together and we'd not be shocked if they one ended up being better than some of the bouts in Osaka.
