World Boxing Association ‘’super’’ and International Boxing Federation bantamweight champion Naoya ‘’Monster’’ Inoue has said he is determined to win impressively in his next bout against World Boxing Organization bantamweight champion John Riel Casimero of the Philippines.
Inoue said through the release of the boxing department of the All Japan High School Athletic Federation on Aug. 7, ‘’While nine months have passed since my next opponent was decided, the bout has been put off time and time again (due to the novel coronavirus pandemic).
He continued by saying, ‘’despite all of that, I have always kept myself in good condition and am ready for the match. The coming bout in the United States will be my debut in Las Vegas, NV, the mecca of boxing, I am confident that I can appeal to boxing fans in the world by attaining a devastating victory. I hope my victory will give people a big shot in the arm and courage. So, please give me your big moral support.’’
