MEXICO City witnessed the successful return of Tomoki “El Mexicanito” Kameda on Saturday night. The former WBO World bantamweight champion knocked out overmatched Edgar Martinez in the second round, earning his first victory after tough back-to-back losses against Jamie McDonnell in 2015.

Kameda’s speed and power was on full display at the Gimnasio G2 in the Federal District. Nothing seemed to have been sacrificed in his move up in weight to super bantamweight. He was quick out of the gates, pouncing on his opponent and landing a couple of solid left jabs almost immediately after the sound of the opening bell.

After testing Martinez ’s chin with a solid right hand, Kameda ducked under a lazy jab from his rival and countered with a compact right hook that staggered his opponent.
