Uchiyama survives a knockdown to retain WBA 130lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten Takashi Uchiyama (21-0-1, 17 KOs), 129.75, impressively kept his WBA super-featherweight throne as he controlled the affair, survived a surprising visit to the deck in round ten, had game compatriot Daiki Kaneko (19-3-3, 12 KOs), 130, at bay down the stretch, winning a unanimous decision (all 117-110) over twelve furious rounds on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. It must be a strong candidate for Japan’s Fight of the Year with the champ and the challenger having fully displayed what they had to greatly entertain the audience and TV watchers on the last day of the year.
