    Bit random but just rewatched his fight with donaire absolutely class fight. The guy is
    Elite level up there with fury,usyk and canelo for me ,
    The fight had everything drama swings back forth and top level ability. Seems been a bit quite on the news any idea on his next fight or if plans move up weight?

    That was a great fight, even if donaire was past his best. Great to watch.

    Has a fight in December apparently.

    Think it showed just how good donaire actually was at one point and at that stage to really give inoue a run for his money and hurt him at stages was amazing ,also a class act outside ring . Tris Dixon has a good podcast with him if you haven't heard it mate

    Fury? He's nowhere near a p4p list on merit.

    Yeah, hard not to think that Donaire would have had him had he been in his pomp.

    He’s probably my favourite boxer out there just now.

    To have such power at the average weight of a ten year old is incredible.

    Pulverised a very capable Jamie McDonnell inside 2 minutes a few years ago and it was a proper what the hell have I just seen sort of moment!

    One of my favourite fighters and comfortably top 3 P4P at the minute IMO.

    He wasn’t capable, he was very concerningly dead at the weight, he was wobbling as he walked to ring. I doubt he earned more than 200k for that fight either which is even more grim.

    Inoue uses winning gloves also, the most comfortable padded gloves you can have as a pro. Imagine if he used a punchers glove!

    Makes his power even more incredible to be honest.

    Great news .Someone like him should be fighting 3 or 4 time a year.

    One of the most relaxed boxers I’ve seen when he gets in the ring, hardly breaks a sweat.
    Still remember when he blitzed McDonnell and then went KOd Payano with a sweet one-two, the first punches he landed with.

    I meant capable in terms of ability but you’re right that the weight was a massive issue for him.

    He apparently rehydrated something silly like a stone from weigh in to the night of the fight.

    I saw him walking through the Debenhams in doncaster frenchgate centre about 4 years ago and he’s absolutely tiny. Not in terms of height but he has the natural physique of a woman in her late teens. He’d look fantastic in a tight fitting dress and some heels.

    Inoue's a beast. Would like to see him fight over here sometime.

    He already fought in Scotland against Rodriguez during the WBSS.
