In recent weeks we've heard about the WBA phasing out their multiple title system, however it's been an on going "issue" for more than a decade now. Way back in 2004 Hideki Todaka [戸高 秀樹] claimed the WBA interim Bantamweight title, avenging a loss to Leo Gamez in the process, and in his first defense he faced Julio Zarate. Although Todaka did win the belt during a period of inactivity from "regular" champion Johnny Bredahl he won the title only 20 days before Bredahl defended the belt, and incidentally this bout came just a week before Bredahl took on Nobuaki Naka.
