31 of the 32 contracted fighters made weight, and the event will proceed tomorrow as planned with 16 bouts.
Headlining the RISE WORLD SERIES 2023 1st Round will be a superfight between Kento Haraguchi and GLORY veteran Anvar Boynazarov . Both fighters share their last loss, GLORY Featherweight champion Petchpanomrung. The big difference here is that Boynazarov has been focusing on his MMA career as of late, and hasn't been in the kickboxing ring since 2019. Both fighters easily made weight.
The centerpiece of the fight card will be the first round of the 54 KG Grand Prix featuring Shiro, Ruben Seoane, Kazuki Osaki, Aiman Lahmar, Toki Tamaru, Petchsila, Kumandoi, and Mohamed Kloua. All tournament fighters were within the weight limit.
The only fighter to miss weight was Runa Kawano, who came in over 3.7 KG on her first attempt and over 3.5 KG on her second attempt. According to the newly revised RISE weigh-in rules she will be disqualified. Seina will step in as a late-replacement and will fight Hotaru in an exhibition bout instead.
