This coming Wednesday we'll get the chance to see an all-Japanese bout for the IBF Super Bantamweight title. That bout will see current champion Yukinori Oguni (19-1-1, 7) [小國 以載] make his first defense of the title, as he takes Ryosuke Iwasa (23-2, 15) [岩佐 亮佑].
Today the two men under-went their medical checks and both men came back with no issues, in what was a very playful examination between two fighters who have a solid friendship.
Interestingly the measurements taken from the medical showed that both were very similar physically,with the only big difference being Iwasa's 4.6cm reach advantage, which he could use very well given his southpaw stance.
Interestingly not only as they similar fighters physically but they have very similar levels of experience as well.
