We've got to be honest November 19th has been a quiet day through history though we have been lucky to find a few recent bouts that should perk the interest of fans, especially when we considering that one man involved in one of those bouts is expected to fight in a world title bout in 2015.
The men alluded to in that opening paragraph was Koki Kameda who made his final defense of the WBA Bantamweight title on this day in 2013 as he narrowly over-came South Korean under-dog Jung-Oh Son. Son managed to drop Kameda though was unable to convince the judges to give him the win what ended up being a split decision win for Kameda. The bout was the most recent male world title fight held in Korea and was also the bout that seemed to send Kameda down to Super Flyweight. Sadly we've not yet seen Kameda fighting a real opponent since this bout despite scoring an easy win over the over-matched Omar Salado just a few weeks ago.
Just a couple of years before Kameda's struggle in Korea we saw Thailand's Nethra Sasiprapa lose a controversial and close decision in Mexico to Jose Alfredo Rodriguez in a WBA interim Light Flyweight title bout. Since the bout Rodriguez has gone 1-4 losing to both Kazuto Ioka and Milan Melindo. Sasiprapa would fight 6 more times winning all 6 before vanishing from professional boxing in 2012 with a lot of unfulfilled potential.
