Neither Fulton nor Akhmadaliev can handle Inoue – Arum


The absolute champion of the bantamweight (up to 53.5 kg) Japanese Naoya “Monster” Inoue (24-0, 21 KOs) will soon officially announce the transition to the next category, where he also plans to collect all four prestigious belts.

About this, as well as the fact that it is unlikely that anyone will be able to prevent Naoe from making plans come true, his American promoter Bob Arum spoke in an interview.

“I think he will decide to give up all four of his world bantamweight titles and move up to 55.3kg,” predicts Arum. “There, all four titles are concentrated in the hands of two champions, so his goal is not only to win the title in the new weight, but to unite them.”

“Honestly, I don’t see anyone there who could handle this guy. He boxing is just superb, and at the same time he has a powerful punch, especially for this weight, ”said Bob.

Recall that at the moment, American Stephen Fulton (WBC, WBO) and Murodjon Akhmadaliev (WBA, IBF) from Uzbekistan own the titles of 55.3 kg.

Previously, Inoue was assigned “super” status – now he can become a contender for Fulton.
