Boxing fans are due a rare treat tomorrow with another World Boxing Super Series unification, this time between P4P star Naoya Inoue and the legendary Philipino – American Nonito Donaire.
Inoue puts his IBF Bantamweight title on the line which he won back in May against unbeaten Puerto Rican Emmanuel Rodriguez, whilst Donaire defends his WBA Bantamweight title over in Japan.
“Fighting one of the world’s best boxers who have grown into a monster is a big motivation,” said Donaire, a multiple world champion in four weight classes. “I will give everything I have to win and I believe I can do it. It has been predicted that the keys to the fight are speed and power and the one who makes a mistake first will lose. On the other hand, we both have boxing brains, so it can be a long game like chess.”
Inoue was also complimentary about his opponent “I have been watching Donaire throughout his career and was stealing his moves when I was starting out in boxing. I have a lot of respect for Donaire, I have idolised him and that’s why he was the one I wanted to fight the most in this tournament. But now it’s time for a change of generations.”
Boxing Guru prediction – Inoue KO inside 6 rounds
