Photos: Solis Shocks Kameda: Tomoki, Takayama Win

Liborio Solis won a twelve round split decision over Daiki Kameda in Osaka, but there was no super flyweight unification because Solis failed to make weight on Monday. Solis lost his WBA title on the scale, and now the WBA belt is vacant. Judge Robert Hoyle had Kameda winning by 115-113, both Joe Garcia and Valerie Dorsett scored it 116-112 for Solis. Kameda keeps his IBF title because he was beaten by a fighter who did not come in as a super flyweight.

Younger brother Tomoki Kameda came through on the undercard, however, with a unanimous decision over Immanuel Naidjala to retain the WBO bantamweight crown. In his first defense since beating Paulus Ambunda of Namibia in August, Tomoki outscored another Namibian on all three cards by 117-111, 118-110 and 119-109.

Katsunari Takayama retained the IBF minimumweight title against Virgilio Silvano of the Philippines with a twelve round unanimous decision.

Wow, he beat a Kameda in Japan? Well, he at least got his belt still

I remember back in the days("80's" &"90's") if in a title fight the challenger did not make the weight, it would be a non title fight, then it was that if the challenger didn't make the weight & the champion…

[QUOTE=teddycanyon;13990724]if a fighter doesn't make weight and wins, that's hardly a win in my book.[/QUOTE] My thoughts too. Glad he has no title now because he could have been a unified champ.
