QUESTION: What’s that coming over the hill? Answer: It’s Naoya Inoue, and he’s on his way to a spot in the World Boxing Super Series’ bantamweight tournament.
The acquisition of Inoue was announced by the WBSS promoters this morning and provides yet another shot in the arm for a project that seems, on the face of it, to go from strength to strength.
“It is an honour to be able to participate and compete in such a great tournament,” said Inoue, a three-weight world champion and the current WBA Regular titleholder at 118 pounds. “Of course I will win, and as the winner of the tournament I will continue onto the next journey of my boxing career!”
