NAOYA INOUE is back in action as he takes on Nonito Donaire in a delicious bantamweight title rematch.
The pair met at the World Boxing Super Series 118lbs final in November 2019 and it was Inoue who prevailed.
But their fight was named Ring Magazine’s Fight of the Year and was a classic that boxing fans will look back on with fondness for years to come.
Inoue unified the WBA and IBF titles that night, but Donaire has since taken the WBC title, beating Nordine Oubaali for the honor.
Lacking opponents to offer up the fight against Inoue, Donaire, who has since requested a rematch, stepped forward.
And they will fight again in Saitama, Japan, where their particular rivalry began.
