Hugo Ruiz Targets Chemito Moreno, Koki Kameda Bouts

By Miguel Rivera

In a division with three WBA bantamweight champions, Hugo Ruiz (30-1, 27KOs) wants to set the record straight. Ruiz, the WBA's interim-champion at bantamweight, wants to face "regular" champion Koki Kameda (28-1, 17KOs) of Japan and the "super champion" at bantamweight, Anselmo 'Chemito' Moreno (32-1-1, 11KOs).

Ruiz is the mandatory to Kameda's title and the two are likely to meet each other in the fall.
