Fulton Inoue is unimpressed: “Take a hit from him – what’s left?” And


The owner of the WBC and WBO belts in the second bantamweight (up to 55.3) Stephen Fulton (21-0, 8 KOs) recognizes the success of the Japanese WBC, WBA and IBF champion in the category below Naoi Inoue (23-0, 20 KOs), but considers that his potential opponent in a megafight sometime in the future is just a good fighter himself, to whom nature has given a powerful blow.

The Philadelphia native, unlike many, can’t call “Monster” one of the best fighters in the world.

“He’s good,” admitted the American.
boxing scene. But I wouldn’t say he’s the best in the world. Yes, he’s good, but if you take that punching power away from him, would you still consider him good?”

We hasten to ask in response to this: what if we take away the footwork from Fulton? And the feel of the ring? All these are components that allow a boxer to break through to the top, and what exactly is his trump card is a second matter.

Tendril? I didn’t even know he fought – Inoue

In the vRINGe pound, the Japanese is in 7th place, while Fulton is not in the top 10 yet. But he’s on his way.

Inoue’s next opportunity to impress will be at the end of the year when he takes on WBO bantamweight champion Paul Butler for undisputed division status.

Fulton is moving up (temporarily?) to featherweight for a rematch with Brandon Figueroa for the “interim” WBC title.

Not Lomachenko and not Usyk. The one and only Fulton – so we wrote about Stephen’s last entry into the ring.
