Masamori Tokuyama — a retired fighter who twice was the lineal champion in the 115-pound division — was arrested in Japan earlier this week after allegedly assaulting two men at a gas station, according to The Japan Times.

The 38-year-old “punched a 24-year-old man who turned his vehicle in front of the former champion after exiting the gas station,” the article said. “He also punched a 53-year-old manager of the station, who had been guiding the man’s vehicle onto the street.”

Tokuyama won the lineal championship in 2000 with a decision win over In-Joo Cho. He then won eight title defenses, including two victories over Gerry Penalosa. His reign came to an abrupt end, though, when Katsushige Kawashima knocked him out in the first round in June 2004.

Tokuyama avenged that defeat and regained the championship by outpointing Kawashima 13 months later. He fought once more, taking a decision over Jose Navarro in 2006 and then retiring with a record of 32-3-1 (8 knockouts).
