Japan’s Kameda retains interim super bantamweight title

The Japanese Tomoki “El Mexicanito” Kameda conquered the interim super bantamweight title, endorsed by the World Boxing Council (WBC), by defeating the Spanish-Dominican Abigail Medina by unanimous decision, in a fight held at the Korakuen Hall, Tokyo.

Kameda had in his ‘jab’ the main weapon with which he accumulated points on a regular basis after supporting Medina’s stakes in the middle and, especially, in the final moments of the fight.

In the end, the judges’ score proved the Japanese fighter with a three score lead of 117-111, 117-111 and 116-112 to win the interim WBC super bantamweight title.

With this victory, Kameda could have the opportunity to fight for the world title with the regular champion, Mexican Rey Vargas, who is currently recovering from an injury. Or, perhaps, give him the title officially if Vargas decides to move up to featherweight.

After this victory, the 27-year-old Kameda has a record of 38 fights with 36 victories and twenty before the limit. EFE
