If anybody deserves to be known as a Child Face Murderer it is Naoya Inoue. however the Japanese, maybe extra appropriately, have nicknamed him The Monster.
Inoue actually turns right into a scary beast as soon as he climbs via the ropes.
It is astonishing how somebody who stands simply 5ft 5ins and weighs 8st 6lb can generate such devastating energy.
He has knocked out fifteen of his seventeen opponents and there is not any doubt pound-for-pound he’s thought of as extremely harmful among the many bantams as Wilder and Joshua are within the heavyweight division.
Inoue can take males out with both hand nevertheless it’s his murderous physique punching that his victims have good motive to concern most.
And his left hook to the liver is the one which paralyses opponents.
If anybody desires proof of simply how a lot that blow hurts they will ask Doncaster’s Jamie McDonnell.
The Brit defended his WBA belt towards Inoue in Tokyo seven months in the past and was fully overwhelmed in simply 1min 52 secs of the primary spherical.
Inoue is already a three-weight world champion and has entered the World Boxing Tremendous-Collection that features Eire’s Ryan Burnett, which will get beneath method early subsequent yr.
His semi-final towards Emmanuel Rodriguez, Puerto Rico’s unbeaten IBF champion, is a lip-smacking prospect.
Inoue mentioned “I can be collaborating with pleasure and take into account it an honour to be a part of this nice competitors.”
And he added ominously: “After all I will win it.”
Inoue has each motive to be super-confident and I doubt there many will guess towards him being recognised because the world’s No 1.
