BoxingScene.com has been advised that WBA "regular" bantamweight champion Koki Kameda (31-1, 17KOs) has vacated his title. The World Boxing Association ordered Kameda to face Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (34-2, 12KOs), who holds the WBA's "super title" at bantamweight. The sanctioning body was looking to establish one titleholder at the weight.

The fight was pushed back previously. On August 28, the WBA ordered the mandatory fight. However, on the 8th of October, the agency approved an optional defense for Kameda, which take place on November 19 in Korea against Jung-Oh.

The WBA ordered a very concrete purse bid for December 10th in Panama.

BoxingScene reached out to Chemito's adviser, Sampson Lewkowicz, who is currently in Argentina. Lewkowicz confirmed the information.

"We were told Kameda has vacated, because he wants to avoid fighting with the real champion of the division, Chemito Moreno. The Japanese are very proud people, but this guy is a coward. He is "Coward Kameda." To do something this late, with the purse bid a few days away, it shows that he never had the balls to fight Chemito. We are now looking at several other options for Chemito," Lewkowicz told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=whoseyourdaddy]I ask for it since Mares vs Moreno, to see how Mares would fare against Rigondeaux, I think Moreno would be a good measuring stick.[/QUOTE] Well, Rigo is a very good boxer and can likely outbox most come forward brawlers, so why not put him in with a really awkward and sl...

Guess he'd rather be at home. His team making him look super bad because this woud have been a pretty good fight. Oh well.

Kameda can fight but he knows what would've happened. Moreno would've schooled him so bad it's not even funny. He knows. Obviously he knows.
