Tomorrow fight fans in Osaka will get the chance to see an OPBF Middleweight title fight between local hopeful Koki Tyson (10-2-2, 10) [太尊 康輝] and defending champion Dwight Ritchie (14-0-0-4,1), who will be defending his title for the first time since winning it in Tokyo earlier this year.
Today, ahead of that bout, the two fighters took part in their weigh in and thankfully both fighters made the 160lb limit for the bout.
At the weigh in Tyson was on the divisionl limit of 160lbs and looked in great shape with a steely determination and a body that looked much better than it had last time out, when he looked like he was carrying some extra weight.
Ritchie came in looking equally in shape, though made the limit with room to spare weighing in at 159¼lbs. Notably he was shorter than Tyson, though was taller in comparison to Tyson than we expected, with that fact also seemingly surprisingly Ritchie himself.
