This coming weekend we'll see Tomoki Kameda (36-2, 20) [亀田和毅] battle against WBC Super Bantamweight champion Rey Vargas (33-0, 22), as they attempt to unify the interim and regular titles.
Yesterday, ahead of that bout, Kameda took part in a media work out and spoke about the contest with Vargas.
The two men, who fought as amateurs with Vargas winning, do know each other somewhat from their days competing on the Mexican amateur scene. At the event yesterday Kameda stated that fighting as professionals was totally different to fighting as amateurs, and stated that he now has the experience to beat Vargas, something he seemingly didn't have when the men fought each other the first time.
He also explained that he was happy to be returning to US soil to fight, and would be showing off his Japanese-Mexican style for the fans in LA
As for the work out it was pretty light and easy, with some shadow boxing for the media.
