Fight Report


Naoya “Monster” Inoue (17-0, 15 KOs) lived up to his nickname with a performance that will again have scared the division’s other champions. Inoue was in no mood for a drawn-out affair, wasting little time in letting his hands go as he flattened former titlist Juan Carlos Payano (20-2, 9 KOs) on Sunday in Yokohama, Japan.

Inoue uncoiled a left-right combination that ended proceedings and possibly the nightmares of the monster for Payano in the contests opener.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
