On Wednesday a press conference was held at the new Kameda Gym in Tokyo, where the world bantamweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Tomoki Kameda (29-0, 18KOs), announced that his next fight would be a mandatory defense against official challenger and former world champion of the same organization, Pungluang Sor Singyu (46-2, 31KOs) of Thailand. Kameda is waiting for the date and location to be finalized for the match.
"I want to fight outside of my country, I've done it several times in Mexico and now I want to do in the U.S.," said Kameda. "I want to learn many things and people know my boxing. I think if I go to another place, I can go up another level. I want to fight the best. I'm a champion and I want to be the best boxer in each division that I'm fighting in."
