WBA World bantamweight champ Jamie McDonnell defends his title a second time against Tomoki Kameda…

On Sunday, September 6, at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas, WBA World bantamweight champ Jamie McDonnell (26-2-1, 12 KOs), from Doncaster, Yorkshire, United Kingdom, defends his title a second time against Tomoki Kameda (31-1, 19 KOs), from Tokyo, Japan, over a scheduled 12 rounds.

The PBC fight will air live on CBS at 4 p.m. ET.

Twenty-nine-year-old McDonnell is a 10-year pro who won the vacant title in May 2014 by stopping Tabtimdaeng Na Rachawat via 10th-round TKO. He’s twice successfully defended his crown, most recently this May when he scored a close and controversial UD against previously unbeaten Kameda, who put him down in the third.

Born in Osaka, 24-year-old “El Mexicanito” is a seven-year ring veteran who won the WBO World bantamweight title by decisioning Paulus Ambunda in August 2013. He’s successfully defended that title three times, most recently in November 2014, decisioning Alejandro Hernandez. The Japanese is currently ranked #4 by the WBA.

    Surprised that this fight is happening right away. I myself see Kameda winning this fight. Could mean a trilogy. Remember how close it was. I think scoring that knockdown probably hurt Kameda, as he may have thought that this is going to be easy, and McDonnell after that boxed a much more intelligent fight.

    That first fight was pretty close.  But I thought that McDonnell beat Kameda pretty good.  Actually I thought that Kameda was going to box a lot better but he did not, instead he took some huge hits to the head during the fight.

    McDonnell now probably really wants to make a statement against Kameda and as Irish is pointing out give him a whooping!

    Good fight the first time around….McDonnell who made a better showing than Frampton, will have to do better this time and that doesn’t just mean not getting knocked down again….it means whipping Tomoki’s ass even harder in the later rounds because this fight is all about getting a Texas win for Kameda.
