The big Bantamweight championship unification Naoya “Monster” Inoue vs Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire is just around the corner and these two punchers will put it all on the line in a rematch that has the potential for another “Fight of the Year” candidate.
Inoue vs. Donaire 2 returns to the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan where they first fought in a “Fight of the Year” classic that ended in a 12-round war.
Inoue will once again risk his undefeated record against the much older veteran champion in Donaire. This is a fight that could go either way, the first one was competitive and even though the Japanese won the unanimous decision, Donaire damaged Inoue’s eye and both had wear and tear.
Will the age of Donaire finally show up on fight night or will he defy father time and have one more amazing performance at the age of 39?
The winner of this fight will have 3 of the 4 belts and goes a step closer to undisputed. The fight is promoted by Top Rank and will be broadcast stateside on ESPN+.
