Gutsy Nonito Donaire Jr. drops decision to Naoya Inoue
Naoya Inoue beats Nonito Donaire in World Boxing Super Series final
10 November, 2019, 06:23
After 12 rounds, Inoue walked away with the Unanimous Decision win, 116-111, 114-113, 117-109, to retain the IBF and Ring Magazine Bantamweight Championships and claim the WBA (Super) Bantamweight Championship.
Nonito Donaire fell short in his gallant stand against undefeated Japanese Naoya Inoue and lost in the bantamweight final of the World Boxing Super Series in Japan on Thursday night. Nonito simply was not intimidated.
An absolute war it absolutely was as Inoue had to overcome a nasty tear on his eyelid which leaked blood into his eye, and a beaten nose that bled profusely during the bout, to grind out a gutsy victory over Donaire, a former four-weight world champion destined for the Hall of Fame. It also cut Inoue near the right eye, which got worse over the fight but was mostly handled very well by Inoue's corner.
After the 118-pound world title bout came the announcement that has been one of boxing's worst-kept secrets: Inoue and Hideyuki Ohashi of Ohashi Promotions have signed a multiyear co-promotional deal with Top Rank that will bring Inoue to the United States to fight on ESPN platforms in early 2020.
But Inoues Monster reputation as one of the planets most fearsome fighters was put in serious jeopardy in the ninth as Donaire rocked him with a sensational counter right, leaving his opponent reeling for the first time in his career. Both landed 51 body shots. The veteran barely beat the referee's 10 count, but it looked as though he'd be finished, as Inoue is a hell of a closer. Inoue then went back to the body, and when the bell sounded to end the round, it was clear we had a Round of the Year contender on our hands.
Inoue's accuracy (36% overall, 33% jabs, 40% power) was excellent, as was his jab (28 attempts/9.2 connects per round to Donaire's 27.4/3.5) and far quicker footwork, but the almost 37-year-old Donaire still landed 36% of his power punches and acquitted himself far better than most expected. He can be tested and has the boxing skills to adjust and adapt. "I had a double vision since the second round but I am victorious and so proud of myself". "I believe that I have a bright future ..."
In round nine Donaire had his most pivotal moment when he stunned Inoue with a right hand that caused the Japanese puncher to try and hold on and survive. He's very strong. I was victorious, but I'm not the greatest of all time yet.
