Tomorrow fight fans in Tokyo will be able to see former world title challenger Hidenori Otake (27-2-3, 12) [大竹 秀典] battle with Filipino fighter Jelbirt Gomera (12-1, 6) for the vacant OPBF Super Bantamweight title.
Today those two men took part part in their weigh in for the bout, and it looked clear that one man had a significant size advantage.
At the weigh in the taller and rangier looking Otake was the heavier man, unsurprisingly. He came in at 121.7lbs for the bout and although well under the limit he was the man looking like a natural Super Bantamweight.
Gomera came in amazingly light at just 120.6lbs for the bout, almost 1.5lbs under the limit. Despite that he seemed confident and looked in good shape with real belief that his right hand has the power to hurt the tough Otake, who has bever been stopped in his 32 fight career.
