Takashi Uchiyama Targets Adrien Broner Unification

By Ricardo Archibold Mendez, notifight.com

Japanese boxer Takashi Uchiyama (18-0, 15KOs), the current super featherweight (130 pounds) champion of the World Association, has no problem with a future clash against Panamanian Celestino Caballero, but he would rather secure a unification bout with WBO king Adrien Broner (23-0, 19KOs). Caballero, the WBA's champion at featherweight, would like to move up in weight to challenge Uchiyama.

"Caballero is a great champion, and I'm sure the day will come where I will face him. At the moment, I want to unify my title against American boxer Adrien Broner, the champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) at 130-pounds, and then in the future I would like to fight against Celestino Caballero," Uchiyama said.

As an asian, WE think America is the BIG stage, and is a fair ground for all ethnicity. Except in St. Louis, (only kiddin')

I thought Japanese boxers only recognize the WBC/WBA as titles and disregard the IBF and WBO?

I can't believe people think this bum Uchiyama stands a chance. He will get KO'd early just like Eloy did. The same people saying this said Paul Williams was going to lose to that other Ishida hype job. I hope…

If Broner went to Japan to snatch that title...I may give a smidgen of respect for the kid. Its a good fight, hope it happens
