In recent months we've seen a growth in the attention that female boxing has got, particularly in the west, with a number of amateur stars turning professional. These have included the likes of Nicola Adams, Katie Taylor and Claressa Shields, among others. Despite those amateur stars all turning professional the female side of boxing is still getting massively over-looked, and you'd be hard pressed to know that there is a world title fight taking place in Korea tomorrow.
That title fight will see Hyun Mi Choi (13-0-1, 4) [최현미] defending her WBA female Super Featherweight title against Japanese challenger Kimika Miyoshi (13-9-1, 5) [三好 喜美佳].
Today the ladies weighed in for their bout, and both managed to make weight at the weigh in, allowing the contest to go ahead as a title bout.
Although both did make weight we haven't yet been made aware of the specific weights for the two fighters, sadly.
The bout, for those interested, will be televised on KBSN Sports at 14:10 local time.
