Donnie Nietes came face-to-face with Kazuto Ioka at today’s weigh-in ahead of their WBO world junior bantamweight title fight.
The rivals are meeting in a rematch of their 2018 clash, which Nietes won on a split decision at the end of 12 keenly contested rounds.
Nietes and Ioka, who have both won world titles in four different weight classes, hit the scales at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel, Tokyo earlier on Tuesday.
Nietes weighed in at 114.5lbs, comfortably inside the 115lbs super flyweight limit, while the champion, Ioka, required a second attempt to make the stipulated weight, tipping the scales at 114.8lbs.
The pair are due to meet at the Ota-City General Gymnasium at 9pm local time on Wednesday evening, with the winner putting themselves in the frame for unification fights.
