Naoya Inoue vs Nonito Donaire 2: Date, start time, undercard – is there a live stream for fight in the UK?
NAOYA INOUE is back in action as he takes on Nonito Donaire in a mouth-watering bantamweight title rematch.
The pair clashed at the World Boxing Super Series 118lbs final back in November 2019, and it was Inoue who came out on top.
But their bout won Ring Magazine Fight of the Year and was a classic that boxing fans will look back on fondly for years.
Inoue unified the WBA and IBF titles that night, but since then, Donaire has picked up the WBC strap, beating Nordine Oubaali for that honour.
With a lack of opponents offering themselves up to fight Inoue, Donaire, who has been calling for a rematch since, stepped up.
And they'll do battle once again in Saitama, Japan, where their special rivalry began.
