Kameda stops Soto in four

By Joe Koizumi

Ex-WBA flyweight champ Daiki Kameda (24-3, 16 KOs), 121.5, scored a fine TKO victory over former Mexican superfly titlist Jovanny Soto (34-14-1, 29 KOs), 121.5, at 0:21 of the fourth round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. WBA#4/WBC#5 115-pounder Kameda, the second of the three Kameda brothers, failed to win the WBA super-fly belt, losing a unanimous verdict to formidable defending ruler Tepparith Kokietgym of Thailand last December. Daiki, in his second comeback bout since, floored the fragile Mexican with a vicious left hook to the side of the belly at the end of the third, and his follow-up rally in the next session decked Soto again to prompt the referee’s intervention.

WBC #11 flyweight, Mexican Oscar Blanquet (32-4-1, 23 KOs), 112.25, stunned the crowd with a quick demolition of WBC#15 Wars Katsumata (AKA Warlito Parrenas; 17-6, 15 KOs), 121.5, a Japan-based Filipino, just thirty-three seconds into the opening session in a supporting ten. A single left hook was a haymaker that really embalmed the ambitious Filipino prone for the count. The Filipino had been unbeaten in five bouts since he was scouted by Katsumata Gym of Tokyo, winning all by knockouts. But Blanquet’s very first punch in the fight ended his dream to climb up the ladder of world ratings.

Promoter: Katsumata Promotions.
