Inoue defeats Donaire in Entire world Boxing Tremendous Collection final

Naoya Inoue of Japan and Nonito Donaire of Philippines fight in their World Boxing Super Series bantamweight final at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama

Inoue and Donaire traded heavy blows from the opening round to the final bell.

Inoue won by decision to take home the Muhammad Ali trophy as well as the $1 million cash prize.

Naoya Inoue has hit the big time.

The 26-year-old Inoue received the Muhammad Ali Trophy for the tournament victory.

The fight concluded Inoue's incredible run through the World Boxing Super Series field.

"It is a tremendous honor to sign with Top Rank and to showcase my talents on ESPN", Inoue said.

WBSS promoter Kalle Sauerland appreciated that the two legendary boxers put up a nail-biting battle for the distance.

Donaire opened a cut above Inoue's right eye with a left hook in the second round.

But Naoya's third fight in the event wasn't almost as easy as his first two quick knockouts in it.

Now ranked fourth in Ring Magazine's pound-for-pound ratings, Inoue will be put on the world map in 2020 as part of Top Rank's plans for him to fight twice in the U.S. before another home bout in Japan later in the year.

Official says US knows little of Baghdadi successor
The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, says Turkey has captured the wife, sister and brother-in-law of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The group said a successor to Baghdadi, identified as Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Quraishi, had been appointed.

The older man appeared exhausted after the halfway point, unable to defend against Inoue's crisp counter right and his eyes began to swell from the accumulative punishment.

Thursday night didn't get off to a good start for the Inoue family.

Somehow, Donaire got back to his feet.

The 3 judges scored the bout 116-111, 117-109, 114-113 in favor of Inoue, who enhanced to 19- with 16 knockouts.

"Donaire was very, very tough for me", Inoue said through an interpreter.

Naoya Inoue delivered perhaps the most impressive win of his professional career by overcoming four-weight world champion Nonito Donaire on points in Japan. He took damage a few times, which I'd never seen before. It was a very close fight. However, Inoue showed great instincts and clinched to remain upright. "Tonight he cemented his legacy and his place in Hall of Fame".

His first fight under this new, landmark agreement will take place in the United States in early 2020. Because what you saw tonight was the best boxing can offer. "I'm sure he'll go up and through the weights and win more world titles".

Heading into the World Boxing Super Series bantamweight final, the consensus was that top-pound-for-pound contender Naoya Inoue would make quick and easy work of Nonito Donaire and cement himself as one of the best fighters in the world.

Inoue looked clearly faster throughout the fight, but Donaire (40-6, 26 KO) was unsafe, and not just from his vaunted left hook.
