Tomorrow fans will see the rematch between IBF Flyweight champion Amnat Ruenroeng (17-0, 5) [อำนาจ รื่นเริง] and Filipino challenger Johnriel Casimero (21-3, 13). Today, ahead of the bout, the men weighed in, twice in fact.
The first weigh in, which was hosted by boxing legend Mike Tyson, saw both men scale well above the 112lb limit, with Ruenroeng weighing in more than 5lbs above the limit. Following that weigh in the two teams spoke with one another, with the rumour being that the bout was going to be held as a possible non-title fight, before it emerged that the IBF had planned the weigh in as a mock weigh in, with the two fighters later weighing in in a "real" weigh in.
At the "real weigh in" both fighters made weight, with both hitting the 112lb limit dead on.
Their was confusion with no one seemingly aware that the first weigh in was a "mock weight in", though the IBF have confirmed that both fighters have made weight, and that the bout will go ahead as planned.
