KOHEI KONO will put his WBA super-flyweight title on the line against Koki Kameda on Friday (October 16) at UIC Pavilion in Chicago, on the same bill as Andrzej Fonfara-Nathan Cleverly. Kono meeting Kameda will be the first time two Japanese boxers have contested a world title in the US.

“I have always had a dream to fight in the United States. I will do my best to perform up to the historic nature of this fight,” Kono explained. “Kameda says he is a ‘charismatic genius.’ I disagree and I’m here to prove him wrong. I will prove it Friday night that I am the true force.

“I am proud of my stamina and activity rate and my punching power. That is why I will win this fight.”
