2012-07-16 Takashi Uchiyama tdraw 3 Michael Farenas, Winghat Arena, Kasukabe, Saitama, Japan - WBA. Referee: Raul Caiz.

On 21 July at the Municipal Auditorium, Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, Bryan Vasquez made a successful defence of the WBA ‘interim’ title when stopping Jorge Lacierva in the ninth round. After Vasquez relinquished his title in early December, on being matched with Uchiyama, Yuriorkis Gamboa outpointed Farenas at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on 8 December to become the new WBA ‘interim’ champion. Making no defences as such, Gamboa vacated the WBA ‘interim’ title in April 2013 when deciding to move up a weight.
