Rey Vargas vs. Tomoki Kameda Agreement is Reached

The World Boxing Council has announced that a deal was reached for the clash between Rey Vargas and Tomoki Kameda. The contest was due to go to purse bids in the next few days; however, the WBC was informed it won’t be necessary anymore as Golden Boy Promotions, TGB promotions and Promociones del Pueblo have reached an agreement.

Further details will be forthcoming in the near future

Vargas won the absolute title on February 25, 2017 defeating Gavin McDonnell. He has managed to defend it in 4 different times, plus, he has improved his undefeated pro record to 33 wins with 22 KO´s.

On the other hand, Kameda, won the interim title by defeating Abigail Medina on November 12 at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. The victory made him the mandatory challenger to the crown.

Tomoki (36-2, 20 KOs), who came to Mexico City at the age of 15 to learn the Mexican style of fighting, has been closely aligned with the WBC and held their youth, international and silver belts, plus the NABF crown, just to name a few.


IN OTHER NEWS:  World Boxing Council atomweight champion, Fabiana Bytyqi, will defend her crown against the Mexican national minimumweight champion, Soledad Vargas, this Saturday, April 6, on home turf of the Czech Republic.

Fabiana comes back from conquering the atom crown of the WBC, after scoring a clear unanimous decision over Denise Castle, with scores of 100-90, 99-91 and 100-90, and thus becoming the first world champion from the Czech Republic.

For her part, challenger Vargas of Mexico comes back from defeating Rosa Olvera by unanimous decision, thus conquering the Mexican national title.

Marisela “Baby” Quintero will have a new title shot in order to try to achieve the dream she`s been seeking since she debuted as pro 10 years ago.

The Culiacan fighter, who has been a national champion in Mexico, will fight for the World Boxing Council minimumweight championship, against the undefeated German Tina Rupprecht on April 6 at the BallhausForum in Unterschleissheim, Germany.

[QUOTE=Catrin;19651996]Leo would dominate Vargas by giving him a one sided beating before stopping him around the 8th. Anyone thinking Vargas could even compete needs to have their account shut down. Anyone thinking Vargas would "Eat" Leo alive should be thrown…

Rey Vargas is nothing special. He had a very close fight with Hovhannisyan and he could lose to Kameda imo. Don't see him beating Santa Cruz
