CEBU CITY--Unlike Joan Guzman of the Dominican Republic who failed to make weight today in Mississippi, both WBO Oriental bantam king Michael Domingo and WBO no. 3 Ratanachai Sor Vorapin easily made the 118-lb bantamweight limit during official weigh-in held today at the Cebu Grand Hotel here.
GAB Commissioner Angel Bautista, assisted by Rolando Mendoza and Tony Comia, supervised today's weigh-in as well as the ensuing rules briefing for the officials who will work tomorrow's highly-anticipated 12-round rumble at the New Cebu Coliseum.
After tipping at exactly 118 lbs, both Domingo and Vorapin then posed for the media, showing their abdominal six-packs that had the crowd predicting a stretched out war tomorrow.
The rest of the weights:
Ex-WBA champ Somsak Sitchatchawal--132.75 lbs
Joel de la Cruz--132 lbs
Geremie Tabas-tabas--111.5 lbs
Usanakorn Kokietgym--111.5 lbs
