Takashi Uchiyama WBA Champion

Starting today, the 130 lbs. super featherweight champion of the World Boxing Association, the Japanese Takashi Uchiyama, have been promoted to the status of super champion.

The decision was endorsed by the Championships Committee, chaired by Gilberto Jesús Mendoza, and communicated to Uchiyama.

Undefeated in 18-0-1, 18 KO’s, Uchiyama is the owner of the 130 lbs super featherweight since January 11, 2010 when he defeated by TKO 12 Mexican Juan Carlos Salgado, in Tokyo.

Since then, the Japanese has made nine title defenses. Four of them won by TKO, two by KO, two technical decisions and a draw.
