We've not got a lot of major international action this weekend but we do get the chance to see a potential thriller in the US on Friday night as Japan's exciting Yoshihiro Kamegai (25-2-1, 22) goes to war with popular Mexican Alfonso Gomez (24-6-2, 12).
The bout, expected by many to be an instant classic, has it's weigh in earlier today and saw both men coming in around the same sort of weight. Kamegai was 149.6lbs whilst Gomez was 149.2lbs.
The bout, made above the Welterweight limit, is expected to help the winner move towards a world title shot later in the year though neither man is expected to go down with out putting up a stirring effort. It's due to that that we're expecting to see something special, even if the fight isn't at the highest level.
On the scales both men looked in good shape. Neither was ripped to pieces but both looked in solid shape and as if they had enjoyed being able to weigh in above the divisional limit as opposed to draining down the last couple of pounds.
If the fight lives up to expectations we'd suspect that fans will be wanting to see more of both men. Unfortunately for the loser however it will be a real struggle to get a meaningful fight.
