Top Rank boxing will hold a rare midweek boxing event on Tuesday, June 7th, and it’s a big one. Naoya Inoue and Nonito Donaire face off in a rematch of their November 2019 title fight. The WBA, IBF, WBC, and The Ring titles are on the line in this bout.
The event will get started bright and early at 5:30 a.m. ET. The Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan will host the event leading to the time difference. The main card is expected to start at 7:30 a.m. ET, but that is subject to change depending on the length of the undercard matches. The full card will air on Amazon Prime Video in Japan and ESPN+ in the U.S.
Two and a half years ago, Inoue won a unanimous decision over Donaire. Inoue entered that bout holding the IBF and The Ring titles and claimed the WBA title with the victory. This time around, Inoue holds those titles while Donaire has the WBC title. Paul Butler is the lone title holdout with the WBO title, but this is effectively for the undisputed bantamweight title.
