Juan Arias 22/04/2017

The Japanese Kazuto Ioka and the Thai Noknoi Sittihiprasert both hit the scales at 112 pounds.

Now they are ready to fight this Sunday in Osaka, Japan, for the World Boxing Association Flyweight Title, which is currently held by the Japanese hitter.

Ioka, 28 years old, won his title at 112 pounds in April 2015, when he defeated the Argentinean Juan Carlos Reveco by majority decision and, since then, he has defended his belt successfully in four occasions.

The man from the Land of the Rising Sun has a record of 21 victories, 1 defeat and 13 knockouts.

His opponent, who is 30 years old, has fought in 66 occasions, with a record of 62 wins, 4 defeats and 38 knockouts. Nevertheless, despite his great amount of battles, this will be the first time that he goes in the ring to dispute a World Title.
