The wait is almost over for Naoya Inoue and Luis Nery

NAOYA Inoue and Luis Nery both successfully made weight ahead of their Tokyo Dome clash tomorrow. In the past, Nery had struggled to make weight in Japan, but this time he met the requirements without any issues, setting the stage for an exciting fight.

The fight will be televised on Sky Sports and ESPN+, allowing a wider audience to witness the skills of these two top pound-for-pound talents. Inoue, known for his lethal body shots, is expected to bring the action early on, while Nery will need to avoid a slow start to stay in the fight. Both fighters looked healthy and ready at the weigh-in.

The undercard features three world title fights, including Jason Moloney defending his WBO bantamweight title and Takuma Inoue defending his WBA bantamweight belt. Seigo Yuri Akui will also defend his WBA flyweight title, and TJ Doheny will be in action in a separate eight-round bout.
