Today the two men took part in their weigh in for the contest and both came in under the contracted 119lbs.
Inoue, who looked in the same excellent shape that he's always been in, came in at 118.8lbs and it looked clear that he wasn't over-looking Masuda here, instead focusing on getting the win and moving towards a world title fight next year.
As for Masuda he was well under the limit, coming in at just over the Bantamweight limit, weighing in at 118.1lbs. Although not quite looking as good as Inoue he was also in fantastic shape, and will be looking to use his experience, and under-rated power, to over-come the unbeaten youngster.
