November 29th! Daisuke Naito Vs. Koki Kameda

A Boxing SUPERfight has been announced for November 29th at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. WBC Flyweight Champion Daisuke Naito will put his title on the line as he faces Koki Kameda, the most popular brother of the extremely well-known and controversial Kameda family.

Kameda acted cocky and talked with a rough language as usual at yesterdays press conference, saying that he doesn’t have any weak points, talking about Naito’s age, etc. Below are stories and footage of some of the controversies which have come from the Kameda brothers fights until now.

August 2nd, 2006 – Koki Kameda vs. Juan Jose Landaeta I

Koki’s first title fight in 2006 ended in controversy. Koki won the fight by split decision which angered many Japanese (it actually was a close fight though). The station which aired the fight got many phone calls with people complaining. A lot of issues arose from the match, death threats, fix allegations, etc. Koki won the rematch clearly though.

October 11th, 2007 – Daisuke Naito vs. Daiki Kameda

Naito successfully defended his title in 2007 against one of Koki’s younger brothers, Daiki Kameda. The fight was very controversial as Daiki, out of frustration, resorted to elbows, lifting and throwing Naito to the canvas, and other foul tactics in the later rounds.

Following the fight Daiki got a one year suspension, his father (who was one of his seconds) got suspended indefinitely, and Koki (also second) got a warning after microphones picked up that he told Daiki to elbow Naito in the eye between rounds. The fight got a huge 40.9% TV rating in Japan (Koki is more popular than Daiki, so you can understand the size of the upcoming fight).

You can see another controversial Koki fight and the kind of personality the father (Shiro Kameda) has when it comes to Boxing in the video below.

    Interesting history. This seems like it should be a big fight in Japan. Too bad it won’t work as a lead in for another DREAM show. That definitely helped DREAM.9 last time, I’m sure.
