On the scales both men were marginally under the divisional limit of 108lbs, and both looked in good shape for the bout. Melindo was slightly more drawn than Yaegashi, however his bone structure does look like it played a part in looking so drawn and drained, but neither looked like they struggled with the scales and instead both men looked in great shape.
Although both men made today's weigh in they will both have to go through a second weigh in tomorrow morning as part of the IBF's rules, and it could be that tomorrow's weigh in more interesting than today's was.
Yaegashi and Melindo battle to unify IBF crown!
