‘Monster’ Inoue to serve as special guest for Apr. 9 Murata-GGG middleweight clash

Mar 24, 2022 22:33 pm

World Boxing Association ‘’super’’ and International Boxing Federation bantamweight champion Naoya ‘’ The Monster’’ Inoue will be among the special guests for the Apr. 9 title unification fight between WBA ‘’super’’ middleweight champion Ryota Murata of Teiken Boxing Gym and IBF ruler Gennadiy Gennadyevich Golovkin of Kazakhstan at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama Prefecture, Amazon Prime Video said on March 24.

According to the American subscription video on-demand over-the-top streaming company, Inoue of Ohashi Boxing Gym will join a par of commentators – former World Boxing Council bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka, who successfully defended the title for as many as 12 times, and former three-division WBC champion Hozumi Hasegawa— for the scheduled 12-rounder.

Popular Japanese comedian Shinya Ueda, known for his love of boxing, will serve as MC of the unprecedented event in Japan, dubbed ‘’Prime Video presents Live Boxing.’’

Amazon will also cover the two chief supporting cards leading up to the Murata-GGG confrontation: undefeated World Boxing Organization flyweight champion Junto Nakatani of M.T Boxing Gym’s second defense of the title against Ryota Yamauchi of Kadoebi Boxing Gym; and a fight between Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organization’s Asia-Pacific lightweight champion Shuichiro Yoshino of Misako Boxing Gym and former WBO super featherweight champion Masayuki Ito of Yokohama Hikari Boxing Gym for Yoshino’s titles.
