Tomorrow fight fans will be able to see unbeaten Russian puncher Eduard Troyanovsky (24-0, 21) attempt to defend his IBF and IBO Light Welterweight titles against Keita Obara (15-1-1, 14) [小原 佳太] in a bout that promises a lot of powerful exchanges.
Today the two men took part in their weigh in for the contest, and both made weight at the first time of asking.
On the scales Obara was 139.2lbs, well under the limit and in fact at a career lowest weight. The powerful and strong Obara has taken this bout incredibly seriously and his low weight made that clear with the visitor not cutting any corners and instead putting everything into his preparation.
Troyanovsky on the other hand was just under 139.9lbs, and close to the limit of 140lbs. The champion, defending his belkt for the second time, is heavier than he was in his lasy two bouts but is well within his typical range of weights.
At the weigh in both men looked in great condition and it's clear that both will go into tomorrow's bout in fantastic physical shape and both will be looking to take home the gold.
