Tomorrow in Osaka fans will get the chance to see an intriguing show at the Sumiyoshi Sports Center. The headline bout on the card will see Filipino warrior Dennis Laurente (49-6-5, 30) defending his OPBF Light Middleweight title against against Japan's Takayuki Hosokawa (27-10-4, 9).
Today the two men weighed in for the bout and both made weight, though specific weight details haven't been made available to us as of yet.
The bout will be Laurente's first defense of the title, which he actually won last year in Tokyo by stopping Tadashi Yuba in 6 rounds. For Hosokawa, a former Japanese champion at 154lbs, this will be his first OPBF title fight and there is talk that if he was to lose tomorrow he would call an end to his career.
