Inoue vs. Nery

Inoue vs. Nery and three additional world title fights will stream live and exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+ at 4 a.m. ET/1 a.m. PT

Japan’s boxing sensation, Naoya Inoue, is gearing up to throw punches in what’s billed as the biggest boxing spectacle the Land of the Rising Sun has ever witnessed. The man’s the undisputed junior featherweight champ, ready to put his bling on the line against Mexico’s hard-hitter, Luis Nery, at Tokyo Dome on a Monday morning that’ll have fans setting their alarms to 4 am.

Inoue’s not new to the limelight, boasting titles across four divisions and having his undisputed moments in two. Yet, the Tokyo Dome gig? That’s a fresh arena for him.

The event’s stacked with three more title tussles streaming live for the American crowd craving some ringside action from afar. Among the lineup, Australia’s Jason Moloney defends his WBO bantamweight title against a former kickboxer turned boxing knockout artist, Yoshiki Takei.

The Inoue family affair continues with Takuma Inoue, Naoya’s brother, defending his WBA bantamweight title. Plus, a flyweight clash is on the cards with Seigo Yuri Akui and Taku Kuwahara duking it out once more.

Bob Arum, the big boss at Top Rank, can’t help but sing praises for Naoya Inoue, expecting him to dazzle over 50,000 fans. And with Moloney jet-setting to Japan, the undercard promises to be anything but dull.

The Tokyo Dome is steeped in boxing history, having witnessed  Douglas’s shocking upset over Tyson. Now, it’s Inoue’s turn to etch his name in its storied past.

Inoue’s record is nothing short of impressive, with a streak of knockouts and world titles that scream “elite.” Meanwhile, Nery, with his own storied past and recent victories, is itching to upset the favorite.

Moloney’s globetrotting defenses add to the international flair, with the Aussie determined to stamp his authority in Japan against the promising Takei.
