Gomera and Nam-Joon Lee Make Weight For WBA Asia 126-Lbs Title Saturday in Korea

23 Jun 2017



Filipino Jelbirt Gomera (L) of Highland Boxing weighed-in at 56.85 Kgs (125.33 lbs) while the much taller Korean Featherweight Champ Nam-Joon Lee made 57.15 kgs (126 lbs) today ahead of their 12-rounder title clash for the vacant WBA Asia 126-Lbs Title tomorrow Saturday (June 24) in Suncheon City, South Jeolla, Republic of Korea; both fighters looking in really good shape.

The 25-year-old Gomera (12-2, 6 KO's), comes to this appointment from a lost by points to tough former world title challenger Hidenori Otake of Tokyo's last March. The 12-round clash against Otake was an OPBF fight in the super bantamweight.

For tomorrow's battle, which is in the featherweight division, Gomera trained with head coach JJ Jorda at the high altitude boxing facility of Highland Boxing Gym in Benguet Province in the Philippines.

Meanwhile, the Korean titlist Nam-Joon Lee (9-5-3, 4 KO's), with more height and reach than the strong Filipino, has been two-time South Korean 126-pounder champ, looked confident and in really topform. Lee's last combat was a technical decision victory over South Korean Compatriot Sa Miung Noh who suffered a severe cut on his left eye, for which fight got stopped in round 7.

The WBA Asia card Saturday in Suncheon is a production of Korea Promotions to be broadcast live on open TV throughout South Korea on MBC Sport Channel.

The live telecast is scheduled to begin at exactly 15:00 KST Korea Standard Time (GMT +9).
