Boxer’s father suspended after loss

The World Boxing Council has handed the father of Japanese

flyweight Koki Kameda a 90-day suspension for an outburst following

his son’s defeat to Thailand’s Pongsaklek Wonjongkam last month.

The suspension, handed down in Mexico City, forbids Shiro

Kameda from entering boxing venues for 90 days, applied from March

28, Kyodo news agency reported Wednesday.

Shiro Kameda, 44, launched a verbal tirade against fight

officials after his son lost to Pongsaklek in Tokyo on March 27.

The Japan Boxing Commission on Monday voided Kameda’s corner

license, effectively banning him from events in Japan. In 2007,

Kameda had his corner license suspended indefinitely for

encouraging his other son, Daiki, to fight dirty in a flyweight

bout.
