Kagawa, Japan - Daiki Kameda beat Rodrigo Guerrero on points to claim the vacant IBF super-flyweight title on Tuesday. The Japanese fighter also secured a place in the history books for him and his two brothers when he won the bout in Takamatsu. The 24-year-olds victory means the Kamedas, once known for their crude behaviour in and out of the ring, became the first trio of brothers to hold world titles at the same time.
Koki, 26, is the WBA bantamweight champion and Tomoki, 22, holds the WBO title in the same division. When Tomoki won his title last month, the Kamedas became the first trio of brothers to have held world titles. Only eight pairs of brothers have held world titles simultaneously.
It was also Kameda's first world title bout since he lost to WBA super-flyweight champion Tepparith Kokietgym of Thailand in December 2011.
"I am really happy to join my brothers," a tearful Kameda said after the bout as his siblings, who been in his corner, looked on. "Now we are the world's number one brothers. I have always been told that if I stuck to my game plan I would win. But in my last fight, I lost because my emotions got the better of me."
