Naoya Inoue continued to strike fear into his competitors today as he left his latest victim battered and knocked out cold in the very first round.
The speed, power and skill Inoue continues to put on show is a sight to be hold.
The fact he now has a platform like DAZN and the World Boxing Super Series to show these talents is only going to propel these pugilistic gifts he has to the masses.
And rightly so.
Like Oleksander Usyk in last season’s World Boxing Super Series, hopefully Inoue can gain some wide acclaim for his boxing ability outside of the hardcore boxing fan base.
Here’s what the boxing world has been saying so far today following his annihilation of victim number 17 in his professional boxing tenure to date:
WOW!!!! INOUE!!! Just wow!!! #WBSS2

I’ve kept saying this for awhile. Maybe, just maybe, Naoya Inoue is already the best active fighter in the world.
