Both WBA minimumweight champ Yutaka Niida of Japan and unbeaten Filipino challenger Eriberto "Yukka" Gejon tipped the scales at 104 lbs, a pound below the regulatory 105-lb limit, during official weigh-in held 30 minutes ago at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan.
This was bared by Gejon's manager Rex "Wakee" Salud in a long-distance conversation with Philboxing.com. Salud, together with pound-for-pound superstar Manny Pacquiao, will be at ringside tomorrow when Gejon guns for the WBA crown against Niida at the 20,000 capacity Yokohama Arena.
Puerto Rico's Luis Pabon will call the shots for the Niida-Gejon rumble, while the three judges tasked to decide the outcome in an event of a stretched out war are Pinit Prayadsab of Thailand, Wan Soo Yuh of Korea and Medardo Villalobos of Panama. Supervising the fight is WBA's Renzo Bagnariol.
