The Puerto Rican referee Luis Pabon will take charge of the bout between bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell and the Japanese Tomoki Kameda this Saturday at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.

Together with Pabon, judging officials for the contest will be Ignacio Robles (PAN), Lynn Carter (US) and Nelson Vasquez (PUR), all of them under the supervision of Carlos Chavez (VEN).

McDonnell (25-2-1, 12 KO) makes his second defense of the title the Briton won in May 2014 by defeating Tabtimdaeng Na Rachawat TKO 1 in London.

On the other hand, Kameda (31-0, 19 KO), the youngest of the Japanese brothers, relinquished the WBO title to fight for the McDonnell’s belt. This is his first shot at the black and gold belt.
