    Inoue is a level above Tapia, tbh.

    Unlike Donaire, who had the power to hurt Inoue, Tapia doesn't have much to deter Inoue with.

    Tapia had a granite chin, so he probably doesn't get stopped, but Inoue would have outclassed him and beat him up.

    A better matchup might be Inoue vs Orlando Canizales

    If Nat Fleischer were alive, he would have picked George Dixon over Inoue.

    People sleeping on Tapia here, he was a tremendously skilled fighter when focused and at his best.

    Its a very decent fight at SFW.

    Was OK, Tapia is potentislly an ATG level fighter and probably top 10 all time at SFW.

    I don't like Tapia's chances here, Inoue is going to hurt him at some point. He'd have a rough go in making the distance

    Donaire was shot to hell, prime Donaire stops him, Inoue won't stop Tapia so I think Tapia beats him with work rate and activity.

    There's a world of difference between prime, and 'shot to hell'. And you know that full well.

    Of course, you'll "let the agenda continue...."
