[SOCIAL WIRE] Naoya Inoue Outclasses Stephen Fulton and the Boxing World Reacts

In his smashing debut as a super bantamweight, superstar Naoya Inoue raised his overall record to 25-0 with 22 knockouts, snatching Fulton's two titles.



In Tokyo, Naoya Inoue seized a decisive victory over Stephen Fulton of the United States, dethroning him as the WBC and WBO super bantamweight champion with an eighth-round technical knockout.

Inoue, known to boxing fans worldwide as "The Monster," has set his sights on an ambitious goal and he took a major step forward on Tuesday, July 25 at Ariake Arena. He intends to become the world's first boxer to hold four championship belts in two weight divisions, a feat he took a major step toward following his bantamweight sweep in December 2022.

The referee intervened in the eighth round, stopping the bout at 1 minute and 14 seconds when Inoue sent Fulton to the canvas for the second time with a powerful combination of punches. This victory marked Inoue's first fight as a title challenger in five years, solidifying his position as a force to be reckoned with in the boxing world.
