Unsurprisingly it will be scheduled for 10 rounds. This was always likely to be the case with both men being too established to battle in an 8 rounder and with no title up for grabs it did seem unlikely they would have a 12 round bout.
The more surprising bit of news was regarding the weight of the bout with the contest being signed not as a Welterweight bout, as we had assumed, but instead at a contracted 150lbs. The weight isn't likely to be an issue for either man and is in fact only 1lb less than the weight Kamegai weighed for his last bout, a 4th round TKO against Oscar Godoy last December. For Gomez it's ½lb lighter than he was for his most recent bout, a decision win over Ed Paredes last July.
