Tomoki Kameda, the undefeated WBC Youth champion, and his challenger Pumar Dondee Singwancha, met face to face at a press conference at the New Otani hotel in Fukuoka, Japan. Kameda (19-0, 12 KOs) and Singwancha (8-1-3, 2 KOs) will meet for the Japanese fighter's bantamweight belt.
"I have a lot of heart and I have to knock my opponent out, because my goal is to become a world champion like my brothers," said Kameda, who turns 20 in six days.
Meanwhile, the Filipino southpaw champion Singwancha acknowledged that "[Kameda] is good and fast, but I can knock him out because I had a great training camp."
Tomoki Kameda won the WBC's Youth world bantamweight title with a points decision over Stephan Jamoye in Mexico.
