The rise of lower weight superstars

The world has been talking about Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. – It has been a super fight, however it didn’t live up to the hype that it was given.  Most boxing experts didn’t expect a brawl – or a fight where both fighters came toe-to-toe.  It was exciting to me, however most do not know that the fighters in the lower weight divisions have just as much talent, as the fighters at higher weights do. The lower weight boxers, do not get the recognition that they deserve.

Naoya Inoue – A Special Talent and Potential Star in the Making

Heading into his bout against reigning WBO Jr. Bantamweight champion Omar Narvaez, the question was whether Naoya Inoue was biting off more than he could chew and was this too big of a leap? Inoue, a 21-year-old phenom from Japan who this past April defeated Adrian Hernandez to capture the WBC Jr. Flyweight title, moved up two divisions to challenge Narvaez who while 39-years-old, was regarded as the best fighter in the division and making the 12th defense of the title. Well as it turns out Inoue (8-0, 7 KO’s) emphatically answered all questions as to whether this was too big of a leap as he destroyed Narvaez, scoring four knockdowns on the way to a second round knockout to win the Jr. Bantamweight strap yesterday in Tokyo.

The forgotten boxing World: Asian Boxing

One of the biggest issues with boxing fans today is that they don’t tend to be aware of the busy Asian scene. This is due in part to the US based boxing media which seems to forget about anything east of Germany which is a real shame for fans who are forced to miss out on some of the best fighters on the planet and some of the most promising youngsters in world boxing.
