Nonito Donaire in Talks for Naoya Inoue Rematch

In his recent interview with Probellum CEO and Nonito Donaire promoter, Richard Schaefer admitted that he is in talks with the Naoya Inoue camp about a potential rematch.

WBA, IBF, and Ring Magazine Bantamweight titleholder Inoue and WBC Bantamweight champion Donaire would meet in a unification bout, probably set for April in Japan. They fought in 2019 in Saitama Super Arena with the Japanese boxer winning by a unanimous decision with scores of 111-116, 113-114, and 109-117.

In the end, Donaire suffered a knockdown and Inoue battled with a broken right eye socket with each of them landing 141 and 227 punches respectfully.
