The weights are in for the big event being presented by Teiken Promotions on Saturday night. In the main event, Carlos Cuadras, (33-0-1, 26 KOs), the World Boxing Council super flyweight champion, will defend his crown for the fifth time the Xebio Arena in Sendai, Japan against local contender Koki Eto (17-3-1, 13 KO), the OPBF champion.
Cuadras and Eto both came in at 114.42-pounds.
Cuadras has fought twice this year. He won a twelve round decision over Luis Concepion in April and knocked out Dixon Flores in five rounds in August.
This will be a doubleheader with two Mexican champions staking their belts, as Pedro Guevara (26-1-1, 17 KO) will defend the WBC light flyweight crown against Japan's Yu Kimura (17-2-1, 3 KO). The champion weighed 107.81-pounds and Kimura was 107.37.
Guevara is also making his third defense of the year. He stopped Richard Claveras in April and then came back in July to win twelve round decision over Ganigan Lopez.
On the same card, former super featherweight world champion Gamaliel “Plátano” Diaz (38-13-3, 17 KO) fights Japan's Takahiro Ao (27-3-1, 12 KO). This will be a rematch bout, as Gamaliel became world champ after defeating Takahiro.
