KOBE, Japan — Japan's Daiki Kameda became the new world champion of the WBA flyweight class with a unanimous decision over Denkaosen Kaowichit of Thailand in their second meeting since October.

Kameda, 21, grabbed the belt with 116-110, 114-112, 116-110 after the full 12 rounds.

He had no knock-down but kept calm despite repeated clinch work by Kaowichit, who suffered one-point deductions in the sixth and 11th rounds for repeatedly holding Kameda.

The Japanese fighter now stands with 16 wins with 11 knock-outs and two losses, including a loss by judges' scorecards to the veteran Thai fighter in October.

For Kaowichit, 33, it was his second loss, with 48 wins including 20 knock-outs and one draw.

"I have been told that I have no boxing sense, no talent. But I was able to continue because of my family," tearful Kameda told roaring fans after the victory.
