Inoue scores crushing knockout win!
Fighting for the second time in America, Japanese sensation and pound for pound fighter unified bantamweight champion Naoya “The Monster” Inoue (19-0, 16KOs) would be taking on hard-hitting Australian Jason Moloney (21-1, 18KOs).
Kicking things off in round one would see both men proceed with caution considering the power both men possess that was the smart play. As the opening round would progress Inoue would start to shoot his powerful jab try to set up his big right hand and left hook, even snuck a nice right hand near the end of the opening round.
A notorious quick starter, Inoue would start to pick up the pace in round three stalking his opponent as if he was Jason in Friday the 13th! Landing powerful left hooks, it was clear that the “Monsters” power was starting to breakdown his adversary. Moloney would be relegated to a high guard and an occasional jab.
Round four would see Inoue shift his focus to the body of Moloney. He ripped vicious hooks downstairs that appeared to buckle the legs of the challenger.
An Inoue knockdown from a left jab would highlight round six.
THE MONSTER STRIKES!
After a one-sided performance, Inoue closed the show in dramatic fashion with a big right-hand in the seventh round!
Inoue, one of boxing’s best fighters, has proved once again that he is on a whole other level!
2021 should be a huge year for Inoue. He is clearly over the broken orbital bone and now ready to unify the rest of the bantamweight titles. Hopefully he faces fellow bantamweight champion John Riel Casimero (30-4, 21KOs). He improves his record to 20-0, 17 KOs while Jason Moloney’s record falls to 21-2, 18 KOs.
