Reports coming out of Japan earlier today all seem to be about the Kameda's.
The biggest news about the Kameda's surrounded WBO Bantamweight champion Tomoki Kameda who appears to have stolen much of the attention however both of his brothers have also stolen some headlines.
For Daiki Kameda (29-4, 18), the former WBA Flyweight and IBF Super Flyweight, the news is regarding his next bout.
At the moment there is nothing set in concrete for Daiki's next contest though it's now strongly expected to be fought overseas with Mexico or the US seeming the most likely destinations though places like the Philippines, Macau and Singapore all being possibilities.
Daiki, just like is brothers Tomoki and Koki, currently has no Japanese boxing license and, unlike Koki, has made no piblic intention of transferring gyms in Japan. Having seen the success of Tomoki in the US it appears that the foreign boxing bug has bitten Daiki and it seems likely that he too wants a taste of fighting away from the auspices of the JBC.
Although he has been out of the ring since last December, losing a much spoken about contest with Liborio Solis, Daiki isn't a man that is easy to forget about, despite being seen the weakest of the 3 Kameda's. His bout with Daisuke Naito is a now infamous contest, his bout with Solis is also one that has been spoken about a considerable amount and his post-fight singing and recognisable outfits have all made him memorable. Sadly however in his 33 fights he has only had one contest on foreign soil and that wasn't all that memorable.
The one contest that Tomoki has fought away from home was a 2011 bout in Mexico against Raul Hidalgo. That contest lasted just 140 seconds.
It would seem likely that if, or rather when, Daiki returns he won't be headlining a show where ever it is held. Hopefully however the wait for his return won't be much longer.
