Japan's Kuroda to fight for WBA flyweight title

Japan's Masayuki Kuroda will challenge World Boxing Association (WBA) flyweight champion Juan Carlos Reveco of Argentina next month, his gym said on Thursday.

It will be the first shot at a world title for the 26-year-old, ranked ninth in the WBA.

"He (Reveco) is a strong world champion, but I think I can beat him if I put in 100 percent," said Kuroda.

The match is scheduled to take place at the Todoroki Arena in Kawasaki near Tokyo on February 27.

Kuroda has 21 wins including 13 KOs against three defeats and two draws. Reveco, a former light flyweight world champion, has 29 wins including 16 KOs against one defeat.
