Yoshihiro Kamegai (26-3-2, 23 KOs) has previously fought in California a total of five times. After each occasion, he returned to Tokyo with his head held high, but without the victory, amassing a record of 0-3-2 on the American west coast.

This Saturday night, on the Roman Gonzalez – Carlos Cuadras undercard, Kamegai seeks to reverse his fortune against former welterweight contender, Jesus Soto Karass (28-10-4, 18 KOs).

In their first encounter, the pair treated the crowd to an intense all-action fight that ended as a draw and is on the short list for fight of the year.
