Default Gamboa to be Official Challenger to Uchiyama in 9 Months

From the news fight:

"The WBA established another interim champ in Yuriorkis Gamboa, who will be Uchiyama’s official challenger in nine months after his successful defense on the last day of the year. It will be a greatly anticipated confrontation between the hard-punchers. Uchiyama said, “In my last defense, I repented of my performance as I had a technical draw with Michael Farenas due to an accidental butt. So, I strongly hoped to finish Vasquez to show a KO victory to my supporters and TV watchers. I know I will have to face Gamboa in the near future, and what I must do is to win each fight.”"

What a fight this would be! Gamboa, for all his skill and athleticism, is still vulnerable and question marks surround his chin. It's an intriguing fight, one of the best match ups that can be made.

Uchiyama seems willing to fight anyone. I have a lot of respect for the guy.

he's a KO waiting to happen, i don't have much faith in japanese fighters, so i'm unsure if this guy will be the one to crack that glass mandible

Was there an offer made by Uchiyama to Broner? Can you provide some links please.

Would it draw more than 1,000 people, half of who would be indifferent? I'd rather see a big event in Japan.

Bet this'll be on the undercard to a Donaire fight later in the year. My guess is Donaire fights for a featherweight title in the main event (say Salido if he gets by Mikey Garcia), and Uchiyama and Gamboa fight on the undercard, with the winner of that fight being promised a crack at the winner of the main event at a later date.

Uchiyama would take Gamboa now I think. Gamboa looked pretty rusty last time out, has always been chinny, and Uchiyama is probably the hardest puncher at 130 now. Recipe for disaster for Gamboa.
