Review: 2014-12-31, some good exchanges between Takashi Uchiyama and Israel Perez but it is not enough to get three stars. The undefeated Takashi Uchiyama entered this fight with a perfect boxing record of 21-0-1 (17 KOs=81%) and he is ranked as the No.2 super featherweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Mikey Garcia), the only man who stopped him in a draw was Michael Farenas in 2012, after this fight he has won three consecutive bouts, the last one against Daiki Kaneko (=Uchiyama vs Kaneko).
His opponent, Israel Hector Enrique Perez, has an official record of 27-2-1 (16 knockouts) and he entered as the No.85 in the same weight class, he suffered his last defeat in 2003 when he faced Luis Fuente, since then he has collected 18 victories and one draw. Uchiyama vs Perez is valid for the WBA World super featherweight title (held by Uchiyama), first world title shot for Perez. Watch the video and rate this fight!
