WBA flyweight champion Daiki Kameda, and his opponent Jesus Martinez, went face to face at the weigh-in held on Friday in Okinawa, Japan. Kameda, the current flyweight world champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA) will not risk his crown against Martínez, since they agreed to fight at the max weight of 54 kilograms (119-pounds).
However, Kameda and Martinez promised a lot of emotion due to the pressure of their Japanese and Mexican fans. Kameda (19-2, 11 KOs) will hold his first fight this year after twice defending his crown successfully. For his part, "Changa" Martinez (18-6, 11 KOs) will begin his campaign to return to boxing after a lengthy layoff.
The battle between Kameda and Martinez will be held in the Onoyama Budokan arena.
