Japanese female fighter Tomomi Takano (5-0, 4) maybe a boxer but lets admit it she's best known for her stunning good looks. Of course with her looks she grabs attention and yet she seems to try and magnifying that attention by making headlines with her weigh in attires.
In recent fights Tomomi has gone to her weigh in in a wedding dress and needed to remove a silicone insert from her bra and a golden full body stocking, both of which have raised eyebrows and gotten the fighter extra column inches both on here and in the Japanese press.
Ahead of her fight tomorrow she went to the weigh in with a new found snake which she appears to have become friends with. This was to add to the fact she has be changing her diet to something similar to that of a snake. With this logic we'd not be shocked to see Tomomi taking the nick name "Cobra" in one of her up coming bouts.
Amazingly even Tomomi Takano was out done at today's weigh in as her opponent Kai Johnson (4-5-3, 1) wore a black bin bag to the weigh in. It appears to have been a direct twist on Tomomi's "glamorous" and is certainly an interesting take on weigh in attire.
The fight between the two promises to be the toughest test so far for the unbeaten Tomomi and it seems clear from the weigh in stunt that Johnson isn't here to just make up the numbers, instead she is here to defeat the unbeaten fighter. With that in mind we are expecting something a little bit special when these two women get in the ring together.
Some bad news from the same card is that bout between Toyoto Shiraishi (24-8-1, 11) and Mako Matsuyama (7-8-1, 3) has been cancelled due to Shiraishi being unfit to fight.
From what we understand Shiraishi was taken to hospital on June 22nd. No other news has reached us on Shiraishi's condition but we do hope him a swift recovery.
