Naoya Inoue TKO’s Dipaen, Retains world titles

Unifed world bantamweight champion Naoya Inoue managed to retain his WBA “Super” and IBF belts after a 8th round TKO victory over Thailand’s Aran Dipaen.

The fight took place in Tokyo, Japan, and it was Inoue’s 22 consecutive pro win and his seven consecutive successful title defence.

Inoue was in complete control of the fight, landing body and head shots at will. Anybody who watched the fight might ask why Dipane was put in the same ring with “The Monster” in first place.

The Thai fighter tried to fight from the back foot, but his shots lacked power and the only thing he showcased throughout the fight was his relentless will to fight back and his iron chin.

Still, when the eight round came, Inoue put pedal to the medal and knocked his opponent down for the first time. Dipaen bravely got up but another Inoue onslaught forced the referee to intervene.
