Naoya inoue vs aran dipaen fight

the Japanese WBA and IBF bantamweight champion made the defense of his belts effective by defeating Thai Aran Dipaen by KO8 in a 12-round bout. His victory was in front of his people, to whom as always he gave a show with his great boxing skills.

The ‘Monster’ Naoya Inoue showed much more boxing than his rival, who was only trying to flee from the champion’s punches, as expected, and in the eighth round a string of power punches sent Dipaen to the canvas, who despite standing up, could not continue the fight due to the referee’s decision after receiving one more power blow.

After this resounding victory for champion Naoya Inoue, what do you think is the best for him and for boxing? It is important to take into consideration the legendary champion Nonito Donaire, because although he has already been defeated by the Japanese, he is still probably the fighter with the best chances of beating him, do you think a rematch between these two bantamweights is convenient?

We also cannot leave third bantamweight champion John Riel Casimero out of the calculations, who was unable to fight his scheduled bout last week due to health concerns. Without a doubt, it is a division that is calling for the confrontation between champions, since it seems that they are at a level nobly superior to the other contenders. Let us know, we appreciate your opinion.
