Sakata to take on Parra for title

Japanese boxer Takefumi Sakata will fight Venezuelan champion Lorenzo Parra in September in a rematch of their WBA flyweight title match, Sakata's Kyoei Gym said Wednesday.

The title fight will take place at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo on Sept. 19. The 25-year-old Sakata lost a 2-0 decision to Parra in Tokyo in June last year in his first shot at a world title.
