All systems are GO in Toluca as both fighters made their weights in their first try. The WBC Jr. Flyweight World champion Kompayak Porpramook of Thailand weighed-in 107 lbs (48.53 kgs), while his Mexican challenger Adri?n "Confesor" Hern?ndez scaled 107.5 lbs (48.76 kgs) ahead of their world title match tomorrow at the Centro de Convenciones de Toluca, Estado de M?xico.
Time for the two warriors to rest and rehydrate for the big event tomorrow (Sunday morning Philippines Time).
At the sound of the bell, the third man in charge action will be the experienced referee H?ctor Af? of Panama.
Judges are John Keane of England; Craig Metcalfe of Alberta Canada and John McKaie of New York USA; supervisor is Carlos Rodr?guez of Argentina.
This fight is a much awaited rematch.
In their first clash, Kompayak (46-3, 31KO's) knocked out "El Confesor" Hern?ndez (24-2-1, 15KO's) during the rough action of round 10 in a heated combat last December at a military camp in Bangkok, Thailand.
Will things be different in M?xico?
The Kompayak-Hernandez title fight is a production of Punch Sports, Zanfer Boxing, the Government of the State of M?xico and will be broadcast live on TV Azteca, La Casa del Boxeo.
