Inoue will defend against Dasmarinas on Saturday

Naoya Inoue is one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world today and is gaining more fans in the United States. The attention for the Japanese fighter will grow even more thanks to the fact that this Saturday he will defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) Bantamweight Super Championship against Filipino Michael Dasmarinas in Las Vegas.

The Virgin Hotels, Las Vegas, will once again see “The Monster”, who comes from defeating Australian Jason Moloney last October 31st.

The 28-year-old Japanese has been champion of the pioneer organization since May 2018. He won his title with a crushing knockout against Britain’s Jaime McDonnell and has defended it three times since then. In addition, Inoue also owns the IBF belt and will defend it in this fight.

Dasmarinas is in a good moment. He has not lost a fight since 2014, which has earned him the right to be Inoue’s challenger. He is also 28 years old and has a lot to gain in a fight of this caliber.

The event organized by Top Rank Boxing will have several promotional activities over the course of the week. On Friday, they will step on the scales to make the 118-pound weight limit and then they will be ready for the fight.

Inoue is undefeated in 20 fights, with 17 KOs. Dasmarinas has 30 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw, and 20 KOs.
