The former WBA Light Flyweight, Flyweight and Bantamweight champion stated that his return would be a one-off. In fact to be more precise it would be an out and out retirement bout, and a chance to end his professional boxing career on Japanese soil.
Koki refused to out and out say who he was wanting to fight, though the persistent rumour is that Kameda is chasing a rematch with former 2-time WBA Super Flyweight champion Kohei Kono (33-11-1, 14) [河野 公平], who beat Kameda in October 2015. Today he again refused to confirm, or deny, the rumour that he wanted to face Kono but did go on to say that if he the man he wants to fight doesn't say yes then he won't be fighting at all in May.
It was a rather strange thing to reveal, though seemingly suggests that it's now or never for the other fighter, who is likely aware that Kameda wants to face them. It's also clear that Kameda is serious about the bout having already began training and seems very intent on walking away from being an active fighter in front of fans in Japan, noting he hadn't fought at home since 2013, when he beat Filipino John Mark Apolinario with a 12 round unanimous decision.
