This reporter previously witnessed many weigh-in ceremonies with world championships at stake—in Japan and abroad—but, the most efficient processing in the weigh-in is always seen here in Japan. Today’s weigh-in for the tripleheader took some fifteen minutes only, and the results were as follows:

WBO junior lightweight title bout
Champion Masayuki Ito (Japan) 130
#1 Evgeny Chuprakov (Russia) 129.25
WBC interim bantamweight title bout
#2 Petch CP Freshmart (AKA Sasana Salapat; Thailand) 118
#5 Takuma Inoue (Japan) 118
WBC light-flyweight title bout
Champion Ken Shiro (Japan) 107.5
#7 Saul Juarez (Mexico) 108
We were so fortunate that we saw no overweight case today.
