Tomoki Kameda grew up in a tough area of Osaka, Japan. Tomoki is the brother of Kōki Kameda and Daiki Kameda. Their father, Shiro, dreamt that all three sons would grow up to win world titles in boxing.
His early nickname in Japan was Kameda-ke Saishū Heiki (亀田家最終兵器). It denotes "The Ultimate Weapon of the Kamedas". He later gained a Spanish nickname El Mexicanito which translates to "The Little Mexican", since he also trains and fights out of Mexico. He has started to earn the respect of Mexican boxing fans, due to his very aggressive style of fighting.
Kameda had been training for the Beijing Olympics and ran his record to 35-1-1 in Japan. After his move to Mexico, he competed in the Guantes de Oro de México. However, he was too young to participate at the Olympic qualifiers. Instead of waiting, Kameda chose to turn pro.
At seventeen years old in Distrito Federal, Mexico, Kameda won his pro debut against Alejandro Moreno. Kameda knocked out veteran Jesus Periban in the third round of their bout. On the Televisa undercard of Mexican, Saul "El Canelo" Alvarez vs. Luciano Leonel Cuello of Argentina, he won the vacant WBC Youth Intercontinental Super Bantamweight title with a unanimous decision against Arturo Camargo.
In August 2013, Kameda fought for the first time outside of his native and adopted countries when he faced 118-pound champion Paulus Ambunda in Cebu, Philippines. Kameda pounded Ambunda with body shots and dominated the 12-round fight, winning a unanimous decision to become the third Kameda brother to earn a world title. When brother Daiki beat Rodrigo Guerrero in September 2013 to become a world champion at 115 pounds, the Kamedas became the first trio of siblings to ever hold titles simultaneously.
Kameda then scheduled a unification bout with WBA (Regular) champion Jamie McDonnell, but after the WBO refused to sanction the bout, Kameda vacated the WBO title to fight McDonnell. Kameda lost to McDonnell on May 9, 2015 in a fight for the WBA (Regular) title. Kameda then lost to McDonnell in a rematch on September 6, 2015.
