The World Boxing Association (WBA) bantamweight world champion, the Japanese Takuma Inoue, made a public workout on Thursday and talked about his next title defense, which will be on May 6 against Sho Ishida at the Tokyo Dome, in the capital of Japan. 

The activity took place in Yokohama, where the 118-pound champion has his training camp and there he had the opportunity to show his physical condition with less than a month left for the fight, in addition to talking to the journalists present. 

Without showing too much, Inoue did some warm-up exercises before stepping into the ring for some shade and gauntlets. He also worked on the bag in front of the photographers present. 

Inoue will be making the second defense of his world belt, which he won in April 2023 against Venezuelan Liborio Solis and first defended against Filipino Jerwin Ancajas in February of this year. Now he will face veteran Ishida and wants to continue his streak and make another successful defense. 

Inoue has a record of 19 wins with 1 loss and 5 knockouts in his professional career and will fight in the same evening as his brother Naoya, who will expose his undisputed super bantamweight championship against Luis Nery in the main event.
