Later today fight fans around the globe will see Takashi Miura (31-3-2, 24) [三浦 隆司] take on WBC Super Featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt (31-1, 28), with Berchelt looking to make his first defense of the title and Miura looking to become a 2-time world champion.
Yesterday the two men took part in their weigh in for the contest, and both came in comfortably under the limit at a little under 129¼lbs.
For Miura the weight was a career low, showing just hgow seriously he's taken this bout and how hard he has been preparing for the contest since becoming the mandatory challenger for the WBC Super Featherweight title.
For Berchelt it was one of his lowest, though he did begin his career flirting with the Featherweight division before filling into a fully fledged Super Featherweight.
