WBO World Jr. Bantamweight Female Bout: Yoshida and Morton make weight
Tomorrow in Chiba we’ll see Miyo Yoshida (12-1) [吉田 実代] and Casey Morton (8-1-3, 1) battle to become the new WBO female Jr. Bantamweight champion. Today, ahead of tomorrow’s bout, the two fighters took part in their weigh in, and both successfully made weight for the contest.
On the scales Yoshida had no problems at all, in fact despite regularly fighting at Bantamweight she was only 114.2lbs on the scales here and seemed to have taken her preparations incredibly seriously.
Morton quite so lucky, originally coming in over the Jr. Bantamweight limit, before rushing to the bathroom and cutting her hair, getting her under the limit with a little bit of wriggle room to spare, at around 114.9lbs.
For those wanting to watch the bout it will, sadly, only be available to users of the Paravi service in Japan, a pay TV service, who will air the bout live. Unfortunately, the service is geo-locked for those outside of Japan.
