Japan's Daiki Kameda beat Rodrigo Guerrero of Mexico on points Tuesday to secure the vacant International Boxing Federation super-flyweight title and a place in the history books for himself and his two brothers. 

Japan's Daiki Kameda (C) poses with his elder brother Koki (L) and younger brother Tomoki (R) after he defeated Rodrigo Guerrero of Mexico at the IBF super-flyweight title boxing match in Takamatsu, Kagawa prefecture, western Japan on September 3, 2013.

The 24-year-old's victory by a unanimous verdict meant the Kamedas, once known for their crude behaviour in and out the ring, became the first trio of brothers to hold world boxing titles at the same time.
