Tomoki Kameda Targets a Championship Fight in 2013

By Miguel Rivera

At 21-years-old, unbeaten Tomoki "Mexicanito" Kameda is looking for a world championship fight in 2013. Kameda has come along well, winning 26 fights and ending 17 by knockout. The youngest of the Kameda brothers made his debut on November 21, 2008. Unlike his older brothers, Tomoki has built up his career in Mexico. He fought 10 times in Japan and 16 times in Mexico.

Tomoki, the WBC's silver champion, is ranked at number 4 under the WBC, and wants to get his crack at the champion Shinsuke Yamanaka of Japan. He is also ranked at 4 under the WBA and 8 under the WBO.

"I think I'm at a stage in my career that I have the maturity to be able to become a world champion and in my mind I was always destined to be a world champion. My two older brothers, Daiki and Koki Kameda [are champions], and it has always been on my mind to make history by being the first trio of brothers to be world champions in professional boxing," Tomoki said.

"I feel that I can fight for a championship and we are prepared to face any opponent, and anywhere in the world. We are ready to win that coveted title from whoever and wherever. My main goal in the beginning is 2013 is to secure a title fight and to continue   working on my boxing career and do things for boxing both in my country and in Mexico."
