Tomorrow fight fans in Japan will get the chance to see WBO Light Flyweight champion Kosei Tanaka (9-0, 5) [田中恒成] defend his title against Thai contender Palangpol CP Freshmart (14-1, 8) [คู่เอก พลังพล ซีพีเฟรชมาร์ท], with the bout being aired live across Japan on TBS and affiliated channels.
Today the two fighters took part in their weigh in and both fighters managed to make weight on their first attempt.
On the scales Tanaka was pretty much on the limit whilst Palangpol, who looked the smaller fighter, was well under the limit at around 107.4lbs.
For Tanaka the weight suited him and he looked a solid fighter at the 108lb limit, much more than he ever did at 105lbs, which always seemed a struggle for the super talented youngster. Palangpol on the other hand look slightly drawn around the face, but nothing too serious and it does seem like both fighters are in very good shape for the bout.
At the weigh we also saw the fightes select their gloves, with Tanaka selecting red and white gloves whilst the Thai will be fighting in blue gloves.
