BRIT star Paul Butler takes on fearsome puncher Naoya Inoue in a huge undisputed match TODAY.
Undefeated Japanese sensation Inoue – Mike Tyson’s favorite boxer – holds the WBA, WBC, IBF and The Ring bantamweight titles, while Cheshire ace Butler is the WBO champion.
Butler, 34, was promoted to full champion from the WBO interim title list.
He has also been at the top of the chart before, winning the IBF bantamweight title in 2017.
While Inoue – nicknamed “The Monster” – has won all 23 of his fights, with 20 wins coming from stoppages.
Butler told BBC Sport: “If I get the fixture plan right I think I’m going to win.
“It’s a tough fight. I have to stay tuned in.
“Inoue deserves his title of pound-for-pound king.
“Everyone knows what he’s good at. He puts people away and stops people.”
