Our Blow-By-Blow segment has been re-ignited as we bring you the key updates on what went down in this super fight between the new blood and the experienced, active boxing legend!

Naoya Inoue vs Nonito Donaire 2

In the opening round between Naoya Inoue and Nonito Donaire, there was a clubbing straight right from Inoue connected on Donaire and sent him to the canvas.

In the moments prior to the knockdown, Donaire leaned into a position where it looked like he was about to throw a straight right but thought better of it and then when he loaded up on another shot, Inoue caught him between the middle of his guard.

Inoue secured a game-changing punch in the second round, catching Donaire with a clipping short left which didn’t quite have the horizontality of a straight but also lacked the rotation of a hook.

The hybrid punch sent Donaire backpacking to the ropes and was the moment the monster had got his prey hooked on the bait, vulnerable to a knockout because he was hurt and also because he had been backed up by a puncher.

Donaire proceeded to get away from the ropes but was in danger regardless. A left hook with the subtlest of swerves from Inoue caused Donaire to stumble backwards and when taking a knee could have given him momentary respite and a glimmer of hope that he could recover, he instead opted to recover his footing.

Inoue then used his footwork and a short jab, followed by a straight right to get Donaire again in retreat on the ropes.

This time there would be no escaping the inevitable, impending doom for Donaire. Another straight sapped the remaining strength and chin of Donaire and as he sunk downwards either in a state of defence or collapse.

A left from Inoue landed flush on Donaire and sent a visible ripple down the left cheekbone of Donaire as he fell sideways onto his back, as Inoue reeled off in celebration of yet another destructive performance.
