Naoya Inoue vs Nonito Donaire 2 confirmed: Boxer Mike Tyson scored ‘bad motherf*****’ and ‘mean little s***’ set for 2019 ‘Fight of the Year’ rematch in June


Naoya ‘The Monster’ Inoue and Nonito ‘The Filipino Flash’ Donaire will meet in the ring on June 7 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

The pair previously faced off in 2019 in the World Boxing Super Series Finals and the fight was later voted the Ring Magazine “Fight of the Year”, as Inoue emerged victorious by unanimous decision.

This fight will be for three of the four major world titles in the bantamweight division, with Filipino John Riel Casimero holding the only other belt.

Since they last met, Inoue has been in tremendous form knocking out his last three opponents, including Jason Moloney and Michael Dasmarinas.

Inoue’s last knockout win came against Aran Dipaen which he caught with a triple uppercut, prompting Mike Tyson to praise the Japanese bantamweight, saying, “Look at this young fighter called the” Monster”, a Japanese fighter called the “Monster”.

“He’s a bad ab**** son, oh you go see that bad mother *****.

“He doesn’t look like much. He’s better than Manny Pacquiao, just as good. He is vicious, the monster. He’s a badass that he beat too, he destroyed him.

“He beat him so easily, he’s a monster, a fucking monster, he’s a mean little prick.”

Meanwhile, not to be outdone, Donaire was equally powerful, stopping Nordine Oubaali and Reymart Gaballo, both within four rounds.

Inoue will undoubtedly enter this contest as the favorite, having won the previous fight, as well as being a top three pound-for-pound fighter.

He has youth on his side being over ten years younger than Donaire.

That being said, the “Filipino Flash” can’t be written off, as he looks just as good at 39 as he did in his prime.

The first fight had it all with a cut, a fractured orbital bone, a knockdown, and relentless action throughout, so if the rematch can deliver half the excitement of the first fight, then we’re in for a treat.
