Koki Kameda: I'll Fight Nonito Donaire at Anytime!

By Kazuto Harada

Koki Kameda (24-1, 15KOs), the WBA's "regular" bantamweight champion, has called for a unification with WBC/WBO title holder Nonito Donaire (26-1, 18KOs). He would to stage a unification bout with Donaire as the main event showcase on the year-end “Kameda Festival” event.

"I will fight with Donaire anytime!," vowed Kameda.

At the present, Kameda’s team is planning his first defense of the bantamweight belt this coming May. After his initial defense of the belt, Kameda will officially offer Donaire a unification fight. The "Kameda Festival" will have three world class title fights. One will involve Daiki Kameda, second will involve the youngest of the clan, Tomoki Kameda in his first world title fight.

"And the main event should be our unification title fight,” Koki said.

So far the Japan Boxing Commission (JBC) has never accepted Japanese boxers challenging for WBO and IBF titles. (JBC only allowed WBA, WBC and OPBF title fights) But now the board of the JBC is considering a move to approve unification title fights between the current champions of the various sanctioning organizations, which include the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO.

[QUOTE=AFighter4U;10144436]Too Green for 118, what about Nonito fighting Montiel? Nonito had only one fight at 118 prior to Montiel. I don't see why a fight bet. them shouldn't happen now. Money wise this fight is bigger than Mares or Agbeko…
