CEBU, Philippines - Japanese world title challenger Tomoki “El Mexicanito” Kameda (27-0, 18KOs) promised to deliver an impressive victory as he fights for the WBO bantamweight title against South African champion Paulos Ambunda (20-0, 10KOs) on Aug. 1 at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.
Tomoki who has been training at the Rex ‘Wakee’ Salud Gym already sparred with former OPBF challenger Marco Demecillo and reigning WBO Asia Pacific Youth Flyweight champion Romnick Magos.
“I feel good training here in Cebu, I will give my best because I want to get that belt and it’s my main goal to be a world champion,” said the 22-year-old Tomoki who is the youngest of the three fighting Kameda brothers of Japan.
