Kameda-Ruiz on December 4

On December 4, WAB “interim” bantamweight champion Hugo “Cuatito” Ruiz (31-1, 28 KOs) will face WBA “regular” bantamweight champion Koki Kameda (28-1, 17 KOs) at the Bodymaker Colosseum in Osaka, Japan. 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. 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. Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno is the WBA bantamweight “super” champion.
