ROAD Fighting Championship will hold its 30 bout in Beijing tomorrow night with an open weight tournament between heavyweights Aorigele vs Choi Hong-Man to headline the card.
Taking place at the Beijing Workers Stadium in Beijing, today’s weigh-in saw Aorigele step on the scale at 150.9kg, while Choi Hong-Man crushed the scales at 157.2kg.
The two were slightly more subdued than their recent press conference, which resulted in tables being turned and both fighters teams left in a tense stand-off.
Asked about his aggressive behavior towards Aorigele in the press conferences, last week with Choi Hong-Man said he would not apologise to opponent who he described as rude.
Also on the card is another open weight match-up between Myung Hyun-Man (118.8kg) and Mighty Mo (127.8kg).
