Tomoki Kameda, The Youngest Brother Ready For Title Run

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The youngest of the fighting Kameda brothers, Tomoki Kameda (12-0, 10KOs), is ready to follow in the same path as his well-known brothers Koki and Daiki. While Koki and Daiki Kameda made their names in Japan, the youngest of the three, 18-year-old Tomoki, has spent most of his career training and fighting in Mexico. The Mexican boxing fans have accepted him as one of their own.

Tomoki fights at bantamweight, a few divisions up from his older brothers who are major players in the flyweight division. Tomoki came to Mexico City three years ago and began training under Ruben Lira.

"They call me 'little Mexican' because I train here. My girlfriend Cuevas Circe is Mexican. My trainer Ruben Lira is Mexican. In 2010 I want the the NABF and WBC youth titles. For me, the most important thing is to fight for the belt of WBC. My family is very grateful to this organization," Tomoki said in perfect Spanish to ESTO.

"As I said, I want to win the WBC world title, either in Mexico or Japan, so that Koki, Daiki, and myseld are kings at the same time and defend our belts against great fighters in a single event for my father. I want to be a superstar and I think I'll be ready by next year."
