Weights are in ahead of the much anticipated world title bout between Mexican Superstar Luis Ramon ‘Yori Boy’ Campas and Gold Coast’s Golden Boy, Les ‘Lock N Load’ Sherrington. Both fighters comfortably made the middleweight limit of 160 pounds or 72.5kg on the metric scale. Sherrington, who has dropped down a weight division for this bout is in the best shape of his career ahead of tomorrows fight.
Campas, who has come Down Under looking for his 82nd career knock out victory, is a seasoned campaigner and was cool, calm and relaxed at tonight’s official weight in.
Campas is arguably the greatest fighter to ever fight on Australian shores and undoubtedly provides Les Sherrington with the toughest test of his career.
In the main support bout Arnel Tinampay and Dennis Hurricane Hogan both made the middle weight limit.
This bout promises to be one of the highlights of the card with Tinampay, a no nonsense walk forward fighter and Hogan one of the Country’s hottest prospects.
Jack Asis and Ryusei Yoshida both hit the scales in tip top shape.
Yoshida has won his last ten fights by knock out and Asis is Toowoomba’s adopted son and on the road to completing one of World boxing’s true cindarella stories but Yoshida is here to play the roll of villain and turn Asis’s fairy tale into a nightmare.
In the final international bout on the card Toowoomba’s Braydon Smith and Thailand’s Yong Saithong both made the feather weight limit.
This is a classic showdown of age and experience against youth and potential.
Can Smith continue to forge his legacy as Australia’s next big thing or will Saithong teach the young law student a lesson?
Tomorrow’s card takes place at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, tickets are available from Tickettek or a the door tomorrow night.
