Both Inoue, Nery clear weight limit of 1 week before May 6 fight at Tokyo Dome

Apr 30, 2024 15:16 pm

Undisputed world super bantamweight champion Naoya ‘’The Monster’’ Inoue of Ohashi Boxing Gym and the World Boxing Council’s top-ranked super bantamweight Luis Nery of Mexico weighed 57.0 kg (or 125. 67 pounds) and 56.6 kg, respectively on Apr. 29, both remaining within the parameters of the WBC’s uppermost limit before their showdown at Tokyo Dome on May 6, according to both sides.

The WBC rule has it that a boxer must weigh within 3 percent of the given weight limit a week before a title fight.

Since super bantamweight weight limit is 55.34 kg or 122 lbs, the upper limit at this time was 1. 66 kg, and each met a regulatory requirement.

The undefeated Inoue has 26 straight wins, including 23 knockouts. The left-handed Nery has a 35-1 win-loss tally with 27 KOs.
