It looks like Takuma Inoue got some things back from his brother Naoya, as we saw him land a triple uppercut against Gakuya Furuhashi.
Takuma was fighting on Naoya Inoue’s undercard against Nonito Donaire 2 and he got a big unanimous decision victory to improve his record to 16-1, with 3 knockouts.
It was a dominating performance, as he used his full arsenal of attacking options, but the most eye-catching were the uppercuts, which he doubled and tripled.
From ringside, every thud of the punches could be heard and it’s amazing that Furuhashi was able to absorb those punches and keep fighting.
While it was an impressive performance from Takuma, his brother Naoya stole the show with his stunning second-round knockout of Donaire.
Their first fight of 2019 was very competitive as it went the distance with Inoue winning on points, but this time it was much more decisive as ‘The Monster’ put on the best performance of his career.
Inoue now holds the WBC, WBA and IBF world bantamweight titles, while Britain’s Paul Butler holds the WBO belt.
Butler has since revealed that Inoue’s team have already been in touch to do an undisputed bantamweight clash later this year.
