By Jhonny Gonzalez

The World Boxing Association has made Yuriorkis Gamboa the top contende rin line to fight WBA super featherweight champion Takashi Uchiyama of Japan.

Gamboa (22-0, 16KOs) returned in December, after a 15 month layoff, and won a twelve round decision over Michael Farenas to captured the WBA's interim-title. Uchiyama (19-0-1, 16KOs) came back on December 31 and stopped mandatory challenger Bryan Vasquez in the eight round.

The question now is whether Gamboa will stick around long enough for the WBA to order the fight. The Olympic gold medal winner is already looking to move up the lightweight division in his next fight. He wants to pursue matches with lightweight champions Adrien Broner and Ricky Burns.

[QUOTE=artfuL_]Excellent fight and about time a sanctioning body is ordering a fight for the fans. That said, I don't see this fight materialising. Uchiyama is a real danger for Gamboa who was taken to deep water by Farinas.[/QUOTE]so losing 11 out of 12 rounds and the one he won was because h...

[QUOTE=happyman]why do you keep spouting this lie? you already got proven wrong a few pages back. he said he'd be fine coming to america.[/QUOTE] I have yet to see an article or interview with Uchiyama saying he's looking to fight in the US, but I could be wrong. Still, this isn't happening...
