On the scales Eto, the shorterman, was 130.3lbs for the bout. The natural Super Featherweight, who recently had a daughter, was confident of over-coming Masaki and stated that his aim was to score a KO here over the unbeaten man. Despite that confidence it is worth noting that Eto has lost his last two bouts and hasn't scored a win since July 2015, when he beat Edgar Gabejan
Masaki wasn't just the taller man but also the heavier fighter, and came in around 131lbs for the bout. It's a weight that suggests his future will be at Super Featherweight, though he will likely grow into a Lightweight as his career goes on. He too was saying that the aim was a KO and it seems like fighting his first Japanese ranked opponent has driven him on in regards to his training camp.
