Today we know Takashi Uchiyama as one of, if not the, best Super Featherweight on the planet. That however wasn't always the case and back in 2007 he was still on his way up through the rankings. His promise was seen a long way off but nobody was certain about just how good he was.
In his 7th fight as a professional Uchiyama took Korean national champion Seung Won Baek and although Uchiyama wasn't nearly the complete article he left a lasting impression with a very impressive victory over a man who had previously challenged for an OPBF title.
If you've not seen this video of "KO Dynamite" in action it's well worth seeing just how good a very young Uchiyama was early in his career. It's also worth seeing just how powerful even a young Uchiyama was. Sad for Baek he would retire after this fight and probably wondered who he had pissed off to deserve being put into the ring with a monster like Uchiyama and also wondered how messed up his internal organs were after a brutal body shot from the Japanese fighter.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
