DAVAO CITY – Pedro Taduran Jr. tipped at 104 lbs. while Rene Mark Cuarto scaled at 105 lbs. during Friday’s final weigh-in for today’s International Boxing Federation World minimimweight championship fight at the Bula Gym at Gen. Santos City.

Taduran (14W-2L-1D, 11 KOs) doesn’t think of a knockout win but he will just go with the flow of the fight.

“Okay naman po magandang laban po yan bukas (It's okay, it's a good fight tomorrow),” said Taduran.
Cuarto (18W-2L-2D, 11 KOs), on the other hand said that he is ready too.
“Ok lang ako (I'm Okay),” said Cuarto.

Both ate a “bulalo” to give them strength.
