Tomoki Kameda Inks Agreement With Al Haymon

By Rick Reeno

WBO bantamweight champion Tomoki Kameda (30-0, 19KOs) has confirmed to BoxingScene.com that he signed an agreement with powerful adviser Al Haymon.

Kameda made his American debut last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. As part of the Saul Alvarez-Erislandy Lara undercard, Kameda scored a spectacular one-punch knockout of Thai challenger Pungluang Sor Singyu.

Tomoki is the youngest of the three fighting Kameda brothers. The three brothers made boxing history last September, when all three of them simultaneously held world titles. Unlike his two older brothers, who are very popular in Japan, Tomoki built his career up in Mexico. He speaks fluently in Spanish and uses the nickname "El Mexicanito."

"Team Haymon saw me at the fight. We had a chance to talk for a while. They were very interested in me. Haymon is the best in boxing. I had the opportunity and I'm very happy [with the deal]. My job is only to train and to win and Mr. Haymon's job is to get me the biggest fights possible and that what I expect he'll do," Kameda told BoxingScene.com.

Haymon's stable continues to grow at rapid rate. He currently works with a who's who of fighters, including Floyd Mayweather Jr., Adrien Broner, Amir Khan, Robert Guerrero, Shawn Porter, Deontay Wilder, Abner Mares, Keith Thurman, Sakio Bika, Leo Santa Cruz, Omar Figueroa, Erislandy Lara, Austin Trout, Devon Alexander, Errol Spence, Gerald Washington, and at least 30 others.

[QUOTE=US Dirk Killer;14766034]Because we see the impending TBA fest against crap opposition[/QUOTE] The kid never features on American tv. Haymon Will manage his American fights and his father will manage his world wide fights else where.

[QUOTE=Black Barty;14765353]This Kameda guy is such a nobody. Wake me up when he fights Yamanaka, Moreno or one of the young lions at 122. Right now he is little more than a prospect with a fake title.[/QUOTE] Kameda is a…
