Policeman-turned Inoue makes professional debut with TKO win in Osaka

Oct 09, 2022 21:14 pm

Former Osaka Prefectural policeman Takeru Inoue of Muto Boxing Gym, a former Kindai University amateur boxer, made a successful professional debut as he stopped Piya Chaichot of Thailand in the sixth and the final round in a flyweight bout on Oct. 9 in Osaka.

The 24-year-old Inoue, who twice won national high-school titles, landed a powerful left hook to the body in the round and attacked all over his damaged opponent, prompting the referee to call off the fight 2 minutes and 26 seconds into the round at the Sumiyoshi Ward Center.

Inoue was working as a policeman at a police box in Osaka after graduating from Kindai University in 2021 but quit the job in June this year to concentrate on professional boxing.

His next fight is said to be expected in this coming December. ‘’I want to continue fighting and am determined to wear a championship belt no matter what,’’ Inoue said after the fight.

With the defeat, the 18-year-old Piya fell to a 1-1 win-loss tally with one KO. The fight was held as one of the undercards of the day’s World Boxing Organization’s Asia-Pacific bantamweight title match.
