World Boxing Association super and International Boxing Federation bantamweight champion Naoya ‘’Monster’’ Inoue, who has been training as planned ever since he entered Las Vegas, NV on Oct. 18 to defend his titles against top-ranked World Boxing Organization bantamweight Jason Moloney of Australia here on Oct. 31 (Nov. 1 Japan time), conducted promotional activities on Oct. 26 despite cold temperature.
The 27-year-old Inoue made Oct. 25 a complete rest day and had two-hours of training at the Top Rank Gym on Oct. 26 by putting on a heater for weight reduction purposes due to a relatively low temperature of 15 C (the highest for the day).
Before the training, Inoue was interviewed by three local mass media (15 minutes for each) online and autographed 30 boxing gloves, all part of the promotional activities of the fight.
The 29-year-old Moloney, who is currently ranked second by the WBA and fourth by the IBF, has been in Las Vegas since Oct. 2.
The scheduled 12-rounder will take place at the MGM Grand Conference Center behind closed doors to avoid COVID-19.
Inoue is undefeated in his 19 bouts, including 16 knockouts, while Moloney has a 21-1 win-loss tally with 18 KOs. Photo by Ohashi Boxing Gym
