Fans are demanding an Inoue-Fulton fight. American commented


Yesterday in Saitama (Japan) the strongest bantamweight fighters (up to 53.5 kg) met in a unification rematch – local puncher Naoya Inoue (23-0, 20 KO) dealt with the legendary Filipino Nonito Donaire (42-6, 42-6, 28 KO).

Immediately after the victory, Inoue named a new target. As expected, he wants to meet with the owner of the missing WBO title to the complete collection of the British Paul Butler (34-2, 15 KOs).

Not all fans are enthusiastic about this idea, since few people believe in the chances of a European to oppose anything to the formidable favorite. Inoue is already being offered to rise higher for the sake of a fight with the unified champion in the second bantamweight division, American Stephen Fulton (21-0, 8 KOs), who confidently passed ex-unified world champion compatriot Daniel Roman over the weekend.

“First, I need a fight for the absolute, and then we can discuss other options,” Fulton reacted to the fans’ Wishlist.

I need undisputed first before we discuss any other option.

It’s no secret that he dreams of a fight with the owner of the rest of the division belts Murodjon Akhmadaliev from Uzbekistan.

Undisputed next?

The fighter said so after Roman’s declassification: “I only need Akhmadaliev.”
