Vasquez Hopes Fortuna Win Will Land Uchiyama Rematch

By Elisinio Castillo

Interim-WBA super featherweight champion Bryan Vasquez (32-1, 17KOs), and his manager Mario Vega, are hoping that victories over tough opponents will lead to a rematch with the full champion of the division, Takashi Uchiyama, who stopped Vasquez in eight rounds a year ago. Uchiyama defends his title against Daiki Kaneko on December 31 in Tokyo.

The World Boxing Association recently ordered Vasquez and hard-hitter Javier Fortuna (23-1, 17KOs) to collide in a final eliminator. Fortuna has a return date slated for March 15th in Panama.

"Bryan [wants us] to find good fights against renowned hitters. Yes, he is fully aware that there is a risk of a taking loss, which would defeat the plans of a possible rematch [with Uchiyama]. But we have no choice but to take risks. Our ultimate goal is Uchiyama. In the first fight with him we made ​​mistakes, learned from the loss and we will not make those mistakes again," Vega said.

Both Vasquez and Fortuna have until early January to reach an agreement, per the WBA's directive.

[QUOTE=RyunosukeRonin;14081153]Curiosity who?? Kaneko is taller ,actually fights sorta similar to Uchi w/o quicks/explosivness but if either lose it'll likely be Miura, Jardon is about the same as Thompson but can move a little better, don't be surprised if that fight…
