Photos: Koki Kameda Training in Okinawa For Next Bout

By Miguel Rivera

Triple world champion Koki Kameda is taking part in a special training period, focusing on strength on the island of Okinawa, as he prepares for the second defense of his bantamweight belt which is recognized by the World Boxing Association. Japan's Kameda (25-1, 16 KOs) will defend his crown against Mexico's David de la Mora (23-0, 16 KOs) on the 31st of August at the Nihon Budokan Arena in Tokyo.

The spectacular fighter training to strengthen his legs, expects his challenger to be strong and skillful.

The older brother of the Kameda clan is taking his next defense very seriously. Mexico's De la Mora is trained by the experienced Romulo Quirarte. Kameda, 24, won the flyweight title (WBA), super flyweight (WBC) and bantamweight (WBA).
