Today Takashi Uchiyama is one of the top boxers in Asia. He's among the hardest hitting fighters on the planet and is among the truly elite in the Super Featherweight division. Back in 2009 however he was a man unknown outside of the Asia. He had held the OPBF title and looked really impressive in Japan but wasn't a man known by in the west.
That changed somewhat in 2010 when Uchiyama claimed the WBA Super Featherweight title with a stoppage victory over Mexican fighter Juan Carlos Salgado. The Mexican, defending his belt for the first time, had made his mark on the boxing world in 2009 when he stopped the much touted Jorge Linares inside a round. Sadly for Salgado he found out that Uchiyama was a very different proposition to Linares and although Salgado fought well for much of the bout he was unable to cope with Uchiyama's relentless assault in round 12.
