Dream "Fight for Japan: 2011 Japan Bantamweight Grand Prix Final" is all set to go down a little later this evening (Friday evening into Saturday morning) live from the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan.
All 16 fighters set to compete on tonight's fight card made weight without incident.
That's not to suggest the festivities went off without a hitch. As Daniel Herbertson reports, Tetsuya Mizuno and Bantamweight GP finalist Masakazu Imanari took their sweet time getting to the weigh-ins while Drew Fickett couldn't "Master" the Japanese scale, coming in 2.2 pounds over weight.
He eventually made the cut on his second attempt earlier this morning.
