Photos/Weights: Megrino vs. Lee, Aguelo vs. Kyoguchi

By Carlos Costa

In a battle of world-ranked flyweights, Filipino Rey Megriño (R), the current WBC #12 flyweight from Misamis Occidental tipped the scale at 113.32 lbs (51.400 kgs), while Japanese WBC #15 Myung Ho Lee (16-3, 5 KOs) of Osaka, made 112.65 lbs (51.100 kgs); both fighters looking in top form for their non-title clash tomorrow (Sat Aug 24) in Osaka, Japan.

The clash is important as the winner pulls close to challenging Japanese WBC flyweight world champ Akira Yaegashi (18-3, 9 KOs).

The 27 year-old Filipino has looked impressive in his last four fights, destroying opponents with chilling power.  Stands out Megrino's awesome pummeling of "WBC Fighter of the Decade" Pongsaklek Wonjongkam (89-5-2, 47 KOs) to capture the WBC International Flyweight Belt last year in Thailand.

Then, in his last fight last January in Japan, Megrino (19-20-3, 17 KOs) brutalized Kenji Kubo in such a devastating fashion that in round 3 he left the brave Kubo unconscious on the canvas.

But tomorrow's foe, Myung Ho Lee, is light-years more accomplished and dangerous than Kenji Kubo, for which Megrino will have to use his wider fight experience to gain control over of the action as the Japanese is a fast moving fighter who rumbled twelve competitive rounds with world-ranked Rocky Fuentes last year last year in Cebu.

Overhaul, Megrino looks tough, ready and focus for Myung Ho Lee and his chances of scoring another win are fairly good.   A lost tomorrow would send Megriño spiraling back to the drawing board.

In the co-main event, tough Leyteño super featherweight Adonis Aguelo (20-8-1, 12 KOs) weighted-in at 58.1 kgs (128.08 lbs) while the taller unbeaten 22 year-old Ryuto Kyoguchi of Osaka weighted-in at 58.6 kgs (129.20 lbs).

The 25 year-old Aguelo, who nearly triples Ryuto's ring experience, should make good use of his speed and ring savvy to overcome the undefeated Japanese, a hot new Osaka prospect.

Since the Japanese is taller with longer reach and proven power in his blows, Aguelo should not give distance.    Fighting the Japanese in the inside, pressing the action while scoring damaging body shots seems the be the course of action for the brave Aguelo as a win is within his reach.

Not an easy fight for any of the combatants, especially for Aguelo as the Japanese  -  who indeed packs good TNT in his knuckles  -  will enjoy being the advantage of being the local, not to mention that the referee and three judges are all-Japanese officials.

Adones Aguelo has been a fighter of the TI Yamagata Stable of Mr. Sato, trained in Cebu under the guidance of Brix Flores.

Megrino and Aguelo are in Osaka, Japan, accompanied by compatriot Brico Santig, winner of last year's "WBC Asian Promoter of the Year Award."
