Tomorrow at the Korakuen Hall Japanese fans will get the chance to see a number of notable names in action.
One of those is former Japanese and OPBF Bantamweight champion Ryosuke Iwasa (19-2, 12), who fights for the first time since being stopped in England by Lee Haskins's in a bout for the IBF interim Bantamweight title. The talented "Eagle Eye" will be up against little known Filipino fighter Marlon Arcilla (8-2, 1) in a bout that has been made at 122lbs.
At the weigh in earlier today both men made weight for the bout with room to spare, showing that whilst the bout had been made at the Super Bantamweight limit neither man was actually draining themselves to made the weight.
Coming into this Arcilla will be seeking his biggest win to date whilst Iwasa will be hoping to bounce back from the loss to Haskins with a confidence building win.
