Former WBA super-bantamweight champion Osamu Sato said Wednesday he is ending his 10-year boxing career.

Sato won the WBA crown in May 2002 by beating Yoddamrong Singwangcha of Thailand in his second shot at a world title, only to lose it to Frenchman Salim Medjkoune in his first defense five months later.
