Dave Kuzio /

Nonito Donaire will be looking to gain a measure of revenge over Naoya Inoue when they lock horns in the rematch the whole boxing world cannot wait to see.

Naoya Inoue v Nonito Donaire II Betting Odds, Tips & Predictions

Back in November 2019, we all witnessed one of the greatest fights in history as Naoya Inoue defeated Nonito Donaire at the Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

This was a brutal war. Inoue got the decision that saw him retain his IBF and The Ring bantamweight titles as well as taking Donaire’s WBA (Super) belt.

It will go down as one of the best fights ever, if you don’t believe me watch the video below.

Inoue is still undefeated with a record of 22 wins, 19 by knockout and three on points. It is safe to say that Inoue knocks opponents out for fun – but he couldn’t do that to Donaire.

That defeat in 2019 was Donaire’s sixth professional defeat. He has a pro record of 48 fights, 28 wins by KO/TKO and 14 by decision.

Donaire has the experience when it comes to age and experience, but the question is whether or not he can find a chink in Inoue’s armour and inflict a first defeat on ‘The Monster’.

Some rematches never live up to the first fight, I think this one will do just that.

I mentioned Donaire has more experience. He is 39 years of age compared to Inoue being 29. He faces a tough ask, and unfortunately, I think he will fall short.

I would love Donaire to win so we get to see these fight for a third time, but I am backing Inoue to get his arm raised with a late stoppage.

This will once again be brutal, but I am going for the younger fighter. Inoue prides himself on knocking people out, and he will still be fuming that he failed to do that to Donaire. He has won seven of his last eight fights by KO/TKO, so it is difficult to back against that. I am backing Inoue to wear Donaire down late in the fight and get the stoppage in round 11 and retain his WBA (Super), IBF and The Ring belts as well as wrestling the WBC strap from Donaire.

Naoya Inoue v Nonito Donaire II Betting Odds, Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions

Nonito Donaire: “After the last fight, there was a fire burning inside of me. The motivation, the feeling that I wasn’t at my best, and I know I can beat him at my best. That was what was inside me going into the locker after the fight. I wouldn’t want this rematch if I didn’t think I could win this fight. I’m very, very motivated. This is the fight that I’ve been aiming for, to accomplish everything that I have not accomplished in boxing. I’ve accomplished everything in boxing except become undisputed, and this is the road to the undisputed.”

Naoya Inoue: “It’s been two years and seven months since we had the first fight, and now we have the rematch in a few days’ time. I’m very motivated and excited. I think everyone is excited.”
