Undefeated bantamweight Tomoki Kameda (27-0, 18KOs) has been asking for a title shot for the last twelve months and now he has it. A deal has been reached for Kameda to challenge the WBO champion Paulus Ambunda (20-0, 10KOs) on August 1st at the Cebu City Waterfront Hotel & Casino in Cebu City, Philippines. Kameda Promotions are staging the event, which is going to be televised in Japana and in the Philippines.

21-year-old Tomoki, the youngest of the three fighting Kameda brothers, is the only sibling who has yet to capture a major title. Older brother Koki is the WBA “regular” bantamweight champion and Daiki has held the WBA flyweight crown.–66314
