D Kameda relinquishes his belt

By Joe Koizumi

After his lackluster performance despite his split decision over #14 ranked Silvio Olteanu of Romania on December 26, Daiki Kameda officially renounced his WBA flyweight belt because of his difficulty to make the weight any longer. The ex-champ explained, “I felt like my legs were paralyzed after the eighth round on due to my too severe reduction of weight. I repent of my poor showing caused by my terrible weight-making.” The WBA accordingly declared interim titlist Luis Concepcion of Panama the full 112-pound champion with Kameda rated atop in the super-fly category.
