Dominance! Naoya Inoue vs. Stephen Fulton full results, video highlights

Naoya Inoue vs. Stephen Fulton goes down in Tokyo, Japan. Can Inoue become a four division world champion?

By: Anton Tabuena | 2 months ago

Naoya Inoue, considered by most as the top pound-for-pound boxer today, is moving up a division to try and take on two belt super bantamweight champion Stephen Fulton.

Inoue, aptly dubbed as โ€œThe Monster,โ€ is unbeaten at 24-0 with 21 knockouts. The Japanese star is known for his intense pace and unreal power for the lighter weights, but will that carry over as he moves up and tries to become a four-division champion? Inoue was the undisputed champion at bantamweight, but Fulton should provide a pretty tough test, being bigger, longer, and also possessing excellent technical ability. Fulton is also undefeated at 21-0 while holding the WBC and WBO titles at super bantamweight.

The fight will happen on July 25 at the Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Japan. Below, weโ€™ll have results, live stream and details on how to watch the entire card.
