It's fair to say that boxing fans are looking forward to tomorrow's action which promises a lot, including the return of the sensational Naoya Inoue. Whilst the world title bouts have been getting the headlines, deservedly so, the under-card is also very strong and one of those bouts features Naoya's younger brother, Takuma Inoue (5-0, 1) defending his OPBF Super Flyweight title for the first time.
The 20 year old Japanese fighter will be up against Rene Dacquel (15-5-1, 5) tomorrow and thankfully both men made weight for their contest.
On the scales the muscular Inoue was the heavier man, weighing in at 114½lbs for the bout, the same as he was when he won the title in September with a decision victory over Mark Anthony Geraldo. Dacquel on the other hand was 114lbs, which is heavier than he was last time, but in his usual "range" of weights.
