Tomoki Kameda wants his shot at the title!

Tomoki Kameda is fresh off his win two weeks ago over Abigail Medina for the WBC Interim super bantamweight title. As of now, he is back in the gym and has resumed training.

During a press conference November 26 in Japan, the Japanese boxer discussed who he envisions fighting in the future.

At 36-2 with 20 knockouts, he is shooting for an eventual fight against WBC champion Rey Vargas. There’s an interesting back-story between these fighters. They fought each other as amateurs with Vargas handing Kameda his only amateur loss.

However, Vargas is in negotiations to fight WBA champion Daniel Roman in the Spring of 2019. That possible unification match could be thwarted by the WBC; who may strip Vargas should he opt to fight Roman instead of Kameda.

If Vargas indeed fights Roman and the WBC subsequently strips him of the title, Kameda suggested he would fight a domestic opponent. Perhaps former WBA titlist Shingo Wake or former IBF junior featherweight champion Ryosuke Iwasa.

A fight with either would be a huge bout in Japan!
