Unified WBO and WBC super-bantamweight title fight rescheduled for July 25
Naoyo Inoue and Stephen Fulton are set to face off in the ring for the unified WBO and WBC super-bantamweight titles. The fight has been rescheduled for July 25 at Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Top Rank confirmed on Wednesday. Inoue was forced to postpone the original fight on May 7 due to an injury sustained in training.
Inoue, one of the most fearsome punchers in world boxing, has moved up a division after becoming the undisputed bantamweight champion. Famed for his lightning-fast combinations, he is pitting himself against unbeaten champion Stephen Fulton from America.
Fulton, who puts his WBC and WBO super-bantamweight titles on the line against Inoue, is widely regarded as one of the best fighters in the world. This showdown promises to be an unforgettable event featuring two fighters at the peak of their powers.
A clash of champions
With 19-0 in world title fights and a total of 21 wins, including 17 by knockout, Inoue is quickly becoming a boxing legend. He also holds the distinction of being the first undisputed bantamweight champion in 50 years. Inoue is aiming to make history by becoming only the fifth Asian boxer to win world titles in four weight classes.
On the other hand, Stephen Fulton has an unbeaten record of 21 wins, 8 of which have been by knockout. He has defeated five previously unbeaten prospects in his first 12 bouts and has added the WBC belt to his collection last October after defeating then-unbeaten Brandon Figueroa.
A must-watch event
The fight between Inoue and Fulton is a clash of champions that fans of the sport will not want to miss. Both fighters are at the pinnacle of their careers, and this event promises to be a spectacle that fans will talk about for years to come.
