Ruiz Travelling to Japan to Unify Against Kameda


On December 4, Los Mochis, Mexico Hugo’s “Cuatito” Ruiz (31-1, 28 KOs) will relinquish his Interim WBA World Bantamweight Championship to face “Regular” WBA Bantamweight Champion Koki Kameda (28-1, 17 KOs) at the Bodymaker Colosseum in Osaka, Japan.


The hard-punching 26-year-old Ruiz won his interim title in January 2011 with a nine-round technical decision over Alvaro Ruiz, after Ruiz was cut by an accidental headbutt. He has successfully defended the belt four times since then, three by way of knockout.


25-year-old southpaw Kameda is a two-time world champ. He won the WBC Flyweight title in November 2009, but lost it via close decision in his first defense. He then moved up to bantamweight and won his current belt with a December 2010 unanimous decision over Alexander Munoz. He has since made four successful defenses. Kameda is one of the most popular boxers in the world based on TV ratings. His fights draw over 50% of Japanese homes.


“Hugo is going into the other guy’s backyard in a very big fight for the Regular championship,” said his promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing. “But he is ready for this. He simply hits too hard for anyone to stand up to and I expect him to score a huge victory.”


Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno is the WBA Bantamweight “Super” Champion.
