Kameda handed lifetime ban

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES According to JBC chief Tsuyoshi Yasukochi, the decision to void his license was unanimous.“There is no rule for returning the license. His use of intimidation runs counter to the rules of society. After reflection, he took responsibility (by offering to return his license), but he has been warned three times in the past and he deserved a harsh sentence,” Yasukochi explained. The Japan Boxing Commission on Tuesday annulled the corner license of Shiro Kameda, the father of former WBC flyweight champion Koki Kameda, effectively banning him for life from activities related to professional boxing.The decision was made final at a meeting of the JBC’s ethics committee a day after the elder Kameda offered to return his license, which had been suspended since 2007, to take responsibility for an epithet-laden tirade against WBC fight officials last month.center_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img
