Hugo Ruiz: I'm Very Confident of Beating Koki Kameda

By Miguel Rivera

Hugo Ruiz (31-1, 28KOs) is very confident of beating WBA "regular" bantamweight champion Koki Kameda (28-1, 17KOs) on December 4th in Osaka, Japan. Kameda has won six in a row since losing a close decision to Pongsaklek Wonjongkam in 2010, while Ruiz has gone unbeaten since suffering an upset TKO loss in 2007 when he was 9-0.

"It will be a great fight, a great fight that everyone will enjoy. He likes to fight, and I also like to go forward and go for the knockout. I always go forward and I'm stronger, better prepared and I will succeed," Ruiz said.

"I feel very confident, but trust me we are going to do a good job there (in Japan). We need to get that title and win that fight. I do not care much about the venue or the location because we are well prepared."

There are so many Kameda doubters here in Japan, even amid the lightest of fight fans. He's all talk. That's how most of the JP boxing fans recognize Koki. This fight is good on paper. Now let it happen. May…

Should be a good fight, Kameda not as good a fighter as his fame suggests, but also fighting in his hometown. Hopefully Ruiz wins so we can have one more live body at 118-122
