Inoue commented on the victory over Tapales

Absolute world champion in boxing in the second bantamweight division Naoya Inoue (26-0, 23 KOs) summed up the results of the fight with Marlon Tapales (37-4, 19 KOs).

Today, December 26, as part of a boxing show in Tokyo, Inoue stopped Tapales in the tenth round.

“I would like to express my respect to Marlon Tapales. He is a very tough opponent. Tapales didn't show me his fatigue or damage, so I was very surprised when he fell in the tenth round.

I am happy to have achieved an early victory in such a fun way. I think super bantamweight is my division right now. So in 2024 I want to show myself in this weight in the best shape,” Sky Sports quotes Inoue.
