Nineteen or the twenty contracted fighters made weight, and the event will proceed tomorrow as planned with ten bouts.
Headlining RISE 167 will be Naoki Tanaka against Kan Nakamura. Tanaka looks to make his first successful title defense of the RISE Lightweight Championship. Both fighters came in under the weight-limit.
In the co-main event, RISE Super Flyweight champion Kazuki Osaki will take on Nicolas Rivas for the ISKA Oriental Rules World Flyweight title. Both fighters made weight. Osaki is confident ahead of the fight, "Tomorrow, I will challenge for the ISKA world belt. I will definitely defeat him and participate in the RISE WORLD SERIES 54 KG world tournament in July. Please look forward to it".
The only fighter to miss weight was Yuki Hamada, who came in over 0.7 KG above the Featherweight limit against Daiki Toida. The fight will still go ahead, but he receives a point-deduction and has to compete in 8oz gloves instead of 6oz gloves.
RISE 167 will stream live on ABEMA in Japan at 5:45 PM JST. The stream won't be region-blocked and can be watched globally for free. Tickets are available at t.pia.jp.
