The expected 12-round fight between World Boxing Association’s sixth-ranked super bantamweight Tomoki ‘’El Mexicanito’’ Kameda of 3150 (Saiko) Fight Club and WBA’s 10th-ranked Yonfrez Parejo of Venezuela to determine the challenger for the reigning super champion Murodjon Akhmadaliev of Uzbekistan in Mexico’s Hermosillo was postponed by one week until Dec. 11, Tomoki said through the club on Nov. 18.
The chief reason for the postponement is the fact that there will be a shortage of boxing officials because there are many fights expected on Dec. 4 in Mexico.
The 30-year-old Tomoki, the youngest of the so-called ‘’three Kameda brothers,’’ submitted a comment, ‘’It often happens overseas. I myself have had many such experiences. Since my mental and weight control have been going smoothly. I am determined to win the fight so that I can move onto the next stage.’’
He went on by saying, ‘’The fight venue Centro De Usos Multiples（CUM）is a site where Mexican superstars such as Julio Cesar Chavez and Jorge Arce fought when they were active boxers. I am very much honored because my fight will serve as the main event for the day. For those Japanese fans rooting for me, please cheer me up via my YouTube channel.’’
Tomoki has a record of 37 wins, including 20 knockouts, against three losses, while the 35-year-old Parejo, a former WBA bantamweight interim champion, has a 24-4-1 win-loss-draw tally with 12 KOs.
