Last night the two men weighed in for their bout and both came in under the Light Welterweight limit.
On the scales the Korean was 139lbs, a similar weight to what he's been over the last 6 years and he looked in great shape and incredibly confident. A less confident looking Cruz was slightly heavier at 139¼lbs. Again the weight was around his usual weight, and slightly lighter than he was last time out, when he was beaten by Michal Chudecki.
This bout should be a great chance for Kim to convince Al Haymon that he deserves more attention. Hopefully he shines and gets moved towards bigger bouts with Korean boxing really needing a genuine success story at the moment, and Kim is the best hope of that.
