Naoya Inoue is the king of 118 pounds and one of the best pound-for-pound fighters today. He owns the World Boxing Association (WBA) bantamweight championship, the WBC and IBF belts. He has yet to win the WBO crown, and he will try to do it against Paul Butler on December 13 at the Ariake Arena, in Koto-Ku, Japan. 

The “Monster” will face Butler at home for the eighth defense of his black and gold title. The Japanese fighter is coming off a spectacular knockout of Nonito Donaire on June 7, and is looking to continue his hot streak. 

Butler will go to his first exhibition as champion and will try to take the top prize. The British fighter is highly motivated and eager to surprise in what is the most important fight of his life so far.

Inoue has 23 wins, no losses and 20 knockouts, while Butler has 34 wins, 2 losses and 15 knockouts.
