Hard hitting Japanese Welterweight Yoshihiro Kamegai will make his return to action in December as he attempts to claim the vacant OPBF Welterweight title in a meeting with Australian Tim Hunt.
Kamegai, who was beaten last time out by Johan Perez, sports an impressive looking record of 21-1-1 (19) and is a former Japanese Light Welterweight champion. He's a hard hitter who is usually fun to watch though he did look surprisingly flat against Perez in what was a hugely disappointing performance from the Japanese fighter.
Fighting back in Japan and with the prestigious OPBF title on the line we expect to see Kamegai back to his best.
Hunt, the co-challenger for the vacant title, has a less impressive ledger which stands at 16-3 (6) though he is the reigning PABA champion at 147lbs.
The bout, set for December 7th will be held at the Korakuen Hall. If Kamegai is back to his best we think this is actually an easy bout for him. If Kamegai has an off night however, like he had against Perez, then it really could be a long way back for the once promising puncher
