Could Nonito Donaire beat Naoya Inoue in a rematch?

Nonito Donaire's unification with Casimero could put him on course for a rematch with Inoue

You can never bet against Donaire with his left hook! But I would favour Inoue and be very confident in him beating Donaire again. Inoue had some tough times in their fight, with being hurt and the injuries, but won pretty comfortably.

Paul Smith
Former British champion

I don’t see Donaire beating Inoue, no. I don’t see anyone around his weight beating him to be fair. He has freakish power and is calm and composed in every single fight I’ve seen him in. One of the best right now.

Paul Ready
Boxing manager

I don’t think Donaire, despite his recent form, has a chance in a rematch. Inoue really is an animal and only gets beaten if he’s reckless going up too heavy.

Chris McKenna
Sports reporter

As much as it would be the fairytale finish, I just can’t see Donaire getting the better of Inoue. Their first fight is an all-time great clash and should be remembered like that but Donaire is getting older and Inoue is getting better so I think it would be the same winner in a rematch. Still like to see it though.
