Earlier today Japanese officials attended a lot of weigh ins. One of those was for the WBA Flyweight world title bout between Kazuto Ioka (18-1, 10) and the man he beat for the title earlier this year, Juan Carlos Reveco (36-2, 19).
At the weight in both men came in at 112lbs though did so very differently.
Ioka made weight on the first attempt and looked comfortable whilst a somewhat drawn Reveco had to weigh in naked to make the limit.
Although Reveco mentioned that Ioka had weighed in naked for their first bout it did come along with a protracted glove dispute that took 40 minutes to solve. The dispute was seemingly over the colour of glove that Reveco would be wearing, though he eventually agreed to wear blue, as was stated in a prior agreement. A very strange dispute though one of many strange things that has clouded Reveco's pre-fight build up, along with a very short open work out and a very disinterested look during the medical check.
Ioka and Reveco go at it again to end the year!
