Former professional four-organization minimumweight champion Katsunari Takayama will be granted his wish to receive an amateur license from the Japan Amateur Boxing Federation, it was announced at a news conference on Tuesday.

The JABF said that Takayama, 35, would officially be registered as an amateur boxer after he submitted the required paperwork to the federation of Aichi Prefecture, where he resides and became a Nagoya Sangyo University student-athlete in April 2017.
