The Japanese bantamweight champion, Naoya Inoue, also rated by many as one of the best pound for pound of the moment, fights this Wednesday, December 14 in his country in a 12-round fight where he will expose his titles against Aran Dipaen.
Naoya Inoue is the current undefeated bantamweight champion of the WBA and IBF, who has a professional record of 21 victories, 18 of them by knoc kout, that is, 85.7% of his fights are finished before time, so he does great honor to his alias of ‘The Monster’. Their confrontation will be against Thai Aran Dipaen, who has a professional record of 12-2, where 11 of his victories came by knockout.
Dipaen can represent a danger for Inoue, as his statistics show that he is a hard-hitting, however, the favorite for this fight is widely the champion, since he is not only supported by his numbers, but in his career he has faced the best boxers in the division such as Nonito Donaire, Jason Moloney and Emmanuel Rodriguez, while significant names are still absent at Dipaen.

More than the development of the fight itself, it seems that this fight has the most attention in a victory without problems for the champion, and thus await the decisions of his team in the selection of his next fight, because although it seems that there is no rival good enough to beat Inoue at present, the legendary Nonito Donaire continues to show off his great boxing and despite the fact that he already lost to the Japanese, a rematch may be the most attractive fight in this division.
