Last night saw the weigh in for the upcoming Super Feather bout between Seiichi Okada (18-4, 11) and Nery Saguilan (29-4-1, 10). The weigh in, and actually the build up for the fight, has seen the men develop some genuine bad blood towards each other with Okada calling Saguilan a "clown" and and showing genuine displeasure at the Mexican's attitude.
The actual weigh in saw both men making the weight, though Saguilan was the slightly heavier man. That wasn't the issue, what was the issue was Saguilan showing a lack of respect to boxing, at least in the eyes of Okada.
From what we understand Okada was partly disappointed in Saguilan dancing with the Corona girls though was more disappointed in the way Saguilan did the "face off" in a Lucha Libre mask.
With this fight being aired on WBCboxing.TV tonight and with the bad blood the men seem to have we need to be honest and say we are actually looking forward to this bout which should be explosive for as long as it lasts.
