Naoya Inoue punishes his sparring partner for his mistake!
This sparring footage featuring IBF, WBA “Super” and Ring Magazine world Bantamweight champion Naoya Inoue (19-0, 16KO) shows what a sharp and truly deadly fighter he is! Watch him (in the white trunks) slip his opponent’s looping shot and counters with his own right uppercut with devastating effect!
Inoue last fought and won a grueling twelve round unanimous decision against four-division champ Nonito Donaire (40-6, 26KO) in November of 2019. With the victory, he became the only unified champion currently at bantamweight and won the division’s first World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) tournament.
He is now expected to take on WBO champion John Riel Casimero (29-4, 20KO) sometime after boxing returns from temporary postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
