Why would you put Kamegai in there with Soto Karass of all fighters, at this stage of his career? Does his team not like him or something? Karass within 7.

Kamegai is a good puncher but Soto is probably the toughest fighter around.Soto Karass 8th round stoppage

I wonder how Kamegai will handle the move up in weight, I've only seen him at JWW. This is turning out to be a good card. :boxing:
