Doncaster’s double Bantamweight World champion Jamie McDonnell will face off in a re-match against Japan’s former WBO Bantamweight titlist Tomoki Kameda on 6th September in Corpus Christi, Texas.
The fight will be shown live on Sky Sports via American boxing manager Al Haymon’s media vehicle, Premier Boxing Champions.
McDonnell successfully defended his WBA “regular” title against the hard hitting Kameda last May, with the Briton bravely battling back from an early knockdown to claim an impressive unanimous decision victory.
September’s rematch comes after the challenger exercised a rematch clause that was included in the contract for his first encounter with McDonnell.
“I’ve beaten him once and I’m certain that I’ll do an even better job on him next time around,” stated McDonnell , displaying his usual dignified confidence.
