Today those two men took part in their weigh in and on the scales it was Takayama who was the heavier man, weighing in around 146.8lbs for the bout. Although the shorter man Takayama did appear to be strong looking at the weight and looks the "thicker" fighter.
Brubaker was slightly lighter weighing in at 146.4lbs though surprised the Japanese fighter by being taller than expected at today's weigh in.
For Brubaker the bout will be his second defence of the title and he, like Takayama, seemed confident of scoring a win tomorrow at the Korakuen Hall.
