    Because Butler was handed the title and not highly rated.

    I think at least since it is for undisputed, he will feel somewhat motivated, just not maximum motivated like he was for Donaire the second time around.

    One of the best of the century so far, even. 19-0 in primary world title fights, two undisputed championships and four divisions. I'd say top 3 (strictly 3rd) since 2000. That's a good five world titles from where he is now, though.

    Regardless if he was handed the title it's still a very important fight for Inoue. It would be foolish of Inoue to gloss over Butler given that he's his ticket to becoming Japan's first undisputed fighter since Harada.

    Yep. I think Inoue was offended that someone hurt him and took him 12 rounds. Leading up to the fight, Inoue was saying that he was going to remove all drama and secure an emphatic victory. Motivation doesn't get higher than that.

    Sauna champ will need to steam off after he gets flatten dec13. Casimero is apparently scheduled to fight on the under card. Against Nihongo sun, Ryo Okaho. We know the story line behind how Nonaire backed out against, quadro Alas. Of course the Sauna stunt they pulled in the UK. Hope he gets flatten for that. Anyway, Inoue. Casimero coming for you..This fight for Casimero is no easy feat. He is in enemy territory. The judges, ref and crowd are against him. Okaho can fight as well.What a road warrior.

    Not only did old Donaire timing, legs are gone. His brain is scrambled as well. What a dumb idea trading with a monsterous puncher. But any whoo! What do you expect the guy was delusional after beating two bums, Quaballos (quabalii and Gaballo). Thought he still got it. When he has looked like garbage for 5 years. Being peddled around the UK to reboot or start up their boxers careers in the UK. Nonaire retire ASAP!! wtf you wanna fight 115 weight bullying again. Pleaze spare us!!

    Nonito's timing and legs weren't gone. Nonito's style has never been predicated on fast feet. Inoue's too sharp and too hard-hitting. He destroys any version of Nonito.

    :lol:

    I don't think it will see the end of the third round. Check out Butler's movement (running) vs Sultan. He nearly always ended up on the ropes with Sultan unloading. Fine against Sultan, hari-kari vs The Monster...

    Quadro Alas wants that smoke. He is training in the UK. First time for a FILO boxer to train full time there. Interested to see the result of the bristish boxing program.Usually be training in San diego but for some reason perhaps visa issues has grounded him in the UK. Being held hostage there. Hope they release him to go monster hunting again.
