Wednesday saw the weigh in for this Thursday's WBC Super Flyweight world title fight from the US. Thankfully both the unbeaten champion Carlos Cuadras (30-0-1, 24) and Filipino challenger Marvin Mabait (19-2-2, 13) comfortably made weight for the bout which is going to be a rare Super Flyweight title bout.
Originally the bout was announced as being between Cuadras and former WBC Flyweight champion Sonny Boy Jaro (37-13-5, 27), sadly however Jaro was forced out of the bout after suffering issues with his visa. As a result Mabait took the fight on about 2 weeks notice and we do wonder what his preparation was like. Hopefully it was good enough for him to put in a complete performance against Cuadras though we suspect that he'll come up short.
As well as the WBC Super Flyweight title bout the show will also feature an interesting female bout between Ava Knight and Guadalupe Martinez hopefully helping to give fans in Washington, D.C. A great night of fights.
