Flyweight 22 1 (14)
Last Year s Ranking: Unranked
Status Report: The Japanese star breaks into the top 50 based on a win over Daisuke Naito (UD 12), a close loss to Pongsaklek Wonjongkam (MD 12), comeback victory over Cecilio Santos (KO 4), and bantamweight strap winning performance over Alexander Munoz (UD 12). The critics were hoping Kameda would fall apart when he finally stepped up. He didn t. That s why he s here.
Future: An April title defense in Japan (where else?).
