Former world champion Daiki Kameda had a successful debut in Mexico when he knocked out Raul Hidalgo in the first round. With the victory, Kameda captures the vacant WBA international super flyweight title.
Kameda (22-2, 14 KOs) and Mexico's Hidalgo (13-4, 10 KOs) were trading punches early on, and it was a big mistake for the Mexican boxer. Two big shots to the liver made Hidalgo take a knee in pain. Referee Manolo Alcocer counted him out at 2:20 of round one.
Kameda plans to fight again on a December date in his native Japan.
