super flyweight champion Masamori Tokuyama will put his title on the line for the seventh time against hard-hitting Japanese Katsushige Kawashima, Tokuyama’s manager said Wednesday.

Hideo Kanazawa said that although the date and venue of the fight have not yet been decided, he thinks he can make a formal announcement on them next month. The 28-year-old Tokuyama, a pro- Pyongyang Korean resident of Japan, has a record of 28 wins, including eight knockouts, against two losses and a draw.
