Later today fight fans in the UK, and the US, will get the chance to see Suguru Muranaka's (25-2-1, 8) [村中 優] battle against WBA Super Flyweight champion Khalid Yafai (21-0, 14) in England.
Yesterday the two men took part in their weigh in and both fighters made weight, with some room to spare.
The challenger, a former Japanese Flyweight champion with wins against world title challengers Takuya Kogawa, Masayuki Kuroda and Hiroyuki Hisataka, looked in great shape coming in around 114.3lbs. It was the lighest he's been since since October 2014, when he scored his signature KO against Yusuke Sakashita.
As for Yafai he was slightly heavier, though still under the limit for what is his first defense of the title. The weight is slightly heavier than he was last time out, when he beat Luis Concepcion, but well under his highest career weight, which is more than 126lbs back in 2013 against Santiago Bustos. Although the heavier man Yafai was the slightly shorter man.
