TOKYO - The popular Kameda brothers, who lived a childhood of many shortcomings in Osaka, are very close to possible completing the dream of their father with all three of them being crowned world champions.
Koki, 24, and Daiki, 22, have achieved this dream, but lacking is Tomoki, 19, who will be ready for his title attempt later this year or early 2012.
"We were very poor, but my father has worked hard to forge our future as fighters," said Tomoki, the younger brother who became a fighter in Mexico.
Koki, the most accomplished of the three so far, won the WBA flyweight belt, WBC and WBA bantamweights titles. And Daiki won the WBA flyweight title.
All three completed high school and chose to devote themselves full time to boxing.
"We are united, we get along very well, this is our success factor," said Tomoki very understandable in Spanish.
Tomoki and Koki and are almost ready to enter the ring on Saturday May 7 at the Gymnasium in Osaka, Japan, with capacity for 5000 people.
Daiki will not be in action on this card, and incredibly, only once have all three Kameda brothers fought in the same card, and this happened last December at the Saitama Super Arena, where the oldest brother won his third world title.
Koki defends the World Bantamweight belt of the World Boxing Association (WBA) against Daniel Diaz of Nicaragua, who is bigger and has powerful arms.
For his part, Tomoki risks his undefeated record with Nathan Bolcio of the Philippines, who was recently crowned Intercontinental Champion.
Shiro Kameda, the father of these spectacular fighters, expects no setbacks
Koki, Daiki and Tomoki opened the doors of their gym to show the items on display, including all of the trophies they have won since putting on the gloves to realize their dreams and embed their names in the history of this exciting sport.
