Fulton vs Inoue: preview

Stephen Fulton vs Naoya Inoue is that most precious of bouts, a title showdown between two undefeated fighters on the very top rung, and a complete clash of styles to boot. Fighting at 122lb for the very first time, Inoue should be the underdog, but his progress through the divisions has been so spectacular that many are looking at WBC and WBO super bantamweight champion Fulton as the challenger.

Nine years ago, Inoue was competing at at 108lb. The Japanese knockout artist has since become a three-division world champion and the undisputed bantamweight king, his explosive power, devastating combinations and rib-busting body blows proving far too much for scores of more physically imposing opponents to handle. 

However, just as Fulton has never come across a fighter like Inoue, Inoue will be aware that Fulton has more to his game than anyone he's crossed paths with before now. The American's boxing brain is second to none, his chin can withstand serious punishment and, as he demonstrated against Daniel Roman and Brandon Figueroa, he's as versatile as they come. 

That said, he'd be a brave man to take on Inoue at Inoue's own game. While The Monster's knockout percentage stands at a frightening 88%, that's never been Fulton's style. Instead, Scooter's going to have to make sure his footwork is flawless, and anticipate Inoue's barrages before it's too late.
