Yesterday we reported thet JBC had accepted Tomoki Kameda's (32-2, 20) [亀田和毅] application for a JBC license, and had processed it. Today, following the JBC giving Kameda his license, he was part of a press conference to accept the license and to talk about his immediate future.
At the moment it's unclear when Kameda will return to the ring but his team have stated that they are trying to get him into a Japanese ring later thia year, and with Kameda now holding his license that has taken a huge step towards happening.
Interestingly the press conference also saw Kameda state his career future lies at Super Bantamweight, and he dropped the names of both WBO champion Nonito Donaire and IBF champion Jonathan Guzman at the press conference.
Although now signed to a Japanese promoter Kameda will continue his unique career, and will continue to live in Mexico and train in the US, something else he confirmed at today's press conference. As a result it would seem likely that he'll continue fighting in the West as well as the East.
