Today, ahead of that Light Flyweight bout, both Horikawa and Ono weighed in for their bout and both made the 108lb limit and looked in good shape for what is, for both men, a must win bout.
For Ono the contest is a chance to add a Japanese title to his collection of honours, which also includes a reign as the OPBF champion. For Horikawa it could be the perfect end to his career after numerous narrow losses in title bouts against the likes of Akira Yaegashi, Yu Kimura and Ryuji Hara.
