Nayao “The Monster” Inoue

Nayao Inoue is recognized as one of the two or three best boxers in the world at the moment. Inoue is the number two ranked pound-for-pound fighter on ESPN’s rankings. He is the WBO and WBC junior featherweight champion and has a perfect 25-0 professional record with 22 KO victories. He will enter this fight as a massive betting favourite. Inoue is known for his speed, knockout power, and punch combinations. He is also one of the most entertaining and exciting fighters in the sport of boxing. Inoue should win this fight. His last fight was a KO victory over Stephen Fulton in July. Inoue has been dominant, making many of his opponents look hopeless and lost in the ring.

There are not many reasons to bet against him here, which is why he is such a big favourite in this fight. He is one of the most skilled fighters in boxing and has strong defence and offence. The biggest concern in this fight is whether or not Inoue will be willing to trade punches with Tapales with hopes of ending the fight quickly or putting on an exciting fight. Inoue is willing to take risks, and has shown he is more than willing to give his opponent an opportunity to land a punch so that he can counter or bait his opponent into trading punches.

Marlon “The Nightmare” Tapales

Marlon Tapales is the current IBF and WBA junior featherweight champion. He has a 37-3 professional boxing record with 19 KO victories. There are few reasons to bet on him in this fight. This would be the biggest upset of the year if Tapales wins this fight. Tapales does have a couple of tools that can help him win this one. He has power, he has shown toughness and the ability to take a punch.

If Tapales can get Inoue to let his guard down in this fight, he will at least have a shot. Inoue has been hit a few times in previous fights, and a hard puncher may be able to put him on the canvas. The chances of Tapales winning this fight by decision are low. He will probably need to knock Inoue out to win this fight. Tapales has been knocked out in his career, and Inoue has knockout power. This will be a tough fight for Tapales. The sportsbooks are giving him almost no shot to win this fight, but things could get interesting if Tapales can find a way to hurt Inoue. Betting on Tapales in this one is a huge risk.
