Tyson declared Inoue better than Pacquiao.

I'm sure M Tyson knows a real champ when he sees one.

5 ( +9 / -4 )

Well done!!..

GO JAPAN!!..

-9 ( +4 / -13 )

Inoue is a great champ, over the rounds he figured out how to beat the visibly bigger Nery. But didn't it go quiet when Inoue hit the floor!

Well, he saw champions Holyfield and Lewis up close.

Big up to The Monster! Never much doubt he was going to send Nery back to Mexico with his tail between his legs.

I honestly cannot ever see Inoue being beaten in however many more fights he has remaining in his career. I wonder what the next challenge is? A move up to Featherweight to unify those titles?

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

It was truly a great fight. Kudos to both fighters. Nery came to Japan to win, not just to get a big check. I think Nery has gained much respect from many Japanese fans, including myself. And Inoue's comeback from the first-round knockdown was incredible. It was a spectacular and devastating knockout by Inoue in the 6th round.

He is definitely one of a kind! The new Pacquiao!

Inoue is now arguably better than both Pacquiao and Mayweather were - who in the latter stages of his career just went around choosing bums to fight to protect his record. Zero respect for him

Anyone putting 4 belts on the line is a brave and confident fighter.

I see the "science of boxing " in this champ.

Angled punches, aimed at the vulnerable parts while legs form a strong V shape to convey power thrown through to the arms and fists.

“Boom boom, OUT GO the LIGHTS” !

Not to take anything away from him. But he hasn't reached Pacquiao's level yet. IMO. His promoter is cherry-picking his opponents (mostly nobodys/bums) and only chooses to hold fights in Japan to make sure Inoue wins and looks impressive.

You are quite mistaken here, my friend. Inoue is definitely not one of the Kameda brothers. To date he has had bouts with 13 current or former world champions - 13! - half of his bouts - and has defeated all of them by KO. His opponent last night was a former champ, highly ranked and not a walk over - he came to fight. Inoue is just that good. He has also fought outside of Japan on several occasions. The kid is legit.

how does that make any sense? He literally is the undisputed champ of two weight classes. That means he fought the champions of each orgs from two weight divisions and became the unified champion.

It would be really interesting to hear what Nery said afterwards.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

The guy would not last fighting Davonta Davis!! He is not match!! Best to stay in his weight class!

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

@Fighto! Are you serious??????? He will not last moving up in another weight class! As you said " he was going to send Nery back to Mexico with his tail between his legs". He would not fair well against the other Mexican fighter in a different weight class he would get a quick lights out!! . Its best he stay where he is in Japan because he would become belt less quickly in a different division!

Sigh!

"He has fought 13 world champions and beaten every one of them. At 31, he’s already one of the finest at any weight from any era: a true superstar and the arguably the greatest show in sports today."
