Japanese boxer Hideyasu Ishihara will take on Mexican champion Martin Castillo on June 26 for the WBA super flyweight title, boxing officials said Wednesday.

The fight at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium marks a rematch of last year’s encounter between the two boxers, in which Castillo won with an 11th-round technical knockout to capture the WBA super flyweight interim title in Gifu on May 16.
