Uchiyama defends WBA superfeather crown

Takashi Uchiyama beat fellow Japanese Takashi Miura by a technical knockout to defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) super featherweight title on Monday. Doctors stopped the fight after the eighth round as Miura’s right eye became swollen.

“I won because he lost his sight. I was lucky, but I’m very sorry for him and his fans. He is tough and he has strong punches. It was a good experience for me,” said Uchiyama, 31.

“When I went down I turned my eyes away from him for a moment. I thought I made a mistake. But it didn’t give me any damage. On the contrary, I guarded tightly and was able to fight.”

“I shall become stronger. I’m determined to win my next title match by a solid knockout victory,” he added.

Uchiyama unleashed a series of jabs to the face to keep Miura at bay but Miura caused a surprise by flooring Uchiyama in the third round with a sizzling left straight to the face.

An accidental butting cut Uchiyama’s right eyelid but Miura was affected by his right eye swelling up.
