“Inoue wins by killing.” Butler laughed at the forecasts in social networks


WBO world bantamweight champion (up to 53.5 kg) Paul Butler (34-2, 15 KOs) chuckles at comments online that his desire to fight against WBC, WBA and IBF belt holder Naoi Inoue ( 22-0, 19 KO) is “death wish”.

“I’ve already read all sorts of comments and predictions about the fight: ‘Butler has a death wish,’ ‘Inoue win by kill’, and that agreeing to fight him would be tantamount to ‘signing a death warrant,'” Butler said in a comment.
Probellum. – Well, yes, he hits very hard, but what’s the worst that can happen? He knocks me out. I’ve been stopped before. But let me be clear: I will enter the ring with faith in my victory.”

Butler has no problem meeting a Japanese in his home country.

“I want to fight in Japan, it would be stupid not to,” he said. – If the fight could be held here, it would be good, but if I get extra money for the fight in Japan, then why not? I hope that the contact between our teams will bear fruit.”

The 33-year-old Brit won the “interim” WBO title, but after real champion John Riel Casimero was stripped of his title due to disruption of fights, Butler was promoted to a full-fledged champion.

Paul says he will be ready to fight Inoue by early October. And it’s already crashing. Naoya says that the priority for the next fight is to meet Butler.
