In what will be the third defense this year, Kameda (31-1, 17 KOs) is entering hostile territory to face Oh Son (20-4-2, 6 KOs), currently sitting at No. 14 in the world rankings under the WBA. Both fighters weighed in at 53.120 kg. - 117.1-pounds.

It should be noted that the WBA will be using the "half-point" scoring system for the fight.

The authorities designated by the WBA: the referee will be the New Zealand's Ferlin Marsh. The judges will Abainza Silvestre, Carla Caiz and Alfredo Polanco. The supervisor will be Venezuela's Noryoli Gil.
