Earlier today saw the weigh in for tomorrows OPBF Super Middleweight title fight between defending champion Yuzo Kiyota (27-4-1, 25), who's making the second defense of his title, and Thailand's Kajornsak Sithsaithong (7-5, 7).
On the scales both men were the divisional limit of 168lbs, despite there being a clear difference in natural size with Kiyota towering over his much smaller foe.
The bout, which takes place at the Korakuen Hall tomorrow, is widely viewed as a mismatch with the champion being very heavily favoured. Despite that the bout does have some interesting with Kiyota on the lower end of some world rankings. A win here would further strengthen his chance of getting a second world title bout before his career comes to an end.
Kajornsak on the other hand comes in to this bout looking for the biggest win of his career, and one of the biggest upsets of the year. It's unlikely, given his ability and form, but with boxing you can can be too confident of what will happen when two fighters land shots.
