The co-main event is the thrilling rematch between WBA bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell and Japanese rival Tomoki Kameda. The two fought a memorable war back in May where McDonnell (26-2-1, 12 KOs) walked away with a unanimous decision win. Kameda (31-1, 19 KOs) dropped McDonnell in the third and felt he did enough to win, vowing vengeance in the rematch.
Kameda was the first to the scale, where he weighed 117.8 pounds. Not to be outdone, the defending champ matched him ounce-for-ounce, officially weighing the same.
The PBC on CBS card will air live in the afternoon starting at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT. It’s being held inside the American Bank Center, Corpus Christi, Texas.
