The loss was the first of his career for Uchiyama and it ended a six year title reign. For the 24-year-old Corrales, it was a breakthrough win in his first fight outside of his native Panama. Before he can move on however, Corrales grants the repescted Uchiyama a rematch.
New Year’s eve is usually met with several boxing, MMA and pro-wrestling cards as part of the festivities in Japan, and Uchiyama has been a headline act on December 31st for the last six years. Could that run be coming to an end this Saturday?
