Photos/Weights: Kameda on Point, Solis Loses His Title

By Luda Saenz, notifight.com

We have a fight, as the weights are in, but we don't have a unification. On Tuesday, the flyweight champion of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), Japan's Daiki Kameda (29-3, 18 KOs), will be measuring against the last man to hold the flyweight championship of the World Boxing Association (WBA), the Venezuelan Liborio Solis (15 -3-1, 7 KOs) at the Colieso Bodymaker in Osaka City, Japan.

On Monday, at noon, the official weigh-in ceremony was held at the "Abeno Q's Mall", before a packed attendance of press and boxing fanatics. Supervisors for the weighin were Lindsey Tucker (For IBF), Mariana Borissova (For WBA) and Leon Panoncillo (WBO).

Daiki Kameda met the required weight of 115 pounds. Unfortunately, Liborio Solis lost the belt at the scales when he registering at 117.5 pounds. Not only does Solis automatically lose the WBA belt, but he also loses the chance to win the IBF belt. If the Venezuelan wins both crowns will become vacant, otherwise Kameda would win two world titles.

In the same function, world bantamweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Tomoki "Mexicanito" Kameda (28-0, 18 KOs), will be exhibiting his title for the first time, against undefeated an challenger from Namibia, Immanuel Naidjala (17-0-1, 11 KOs).

In a special attraction, world IBF strawweight champ, Japan's Katsunari Takayama (25-6 10 KOs) will be defending his title against Filipino challenger Vergilio Silvano (17-2-1 10 KOs).
