Next month’s scheduled nontitle fight between former three-time World Boxing Council bantamweight champion Joichiro Tatsuyoshi and Hugo Dianzo of Mexico in Osaka has been postponed at least until this fall, boxing officials said Wednesday.

The 10-round fight was originally scheduled to take place on July 6 at the Osaka Municipal Central Gymnasium. Tatsuyoshi, 33, injured a left thigh muscle during recent training and his doctor said it will require at least one month to heal, according to the officials.
