Naoya Inoue vs Luis Nery Fight Preview

When boxing sensation Naoya Inoue challenges Luis Nery for the super bantamweight titles at the Tokyo Dome on May 6, he will become the first person from Japan to defend an uncontested title in more than 50 years. Continue reading more articles like this for more boxing analysis.


Naoya Inoue Analysis: He’s undefeated

Inoue (26-0, 23 KOs) has the ideal balance of power, speed, and skill. Since going pro in 2012, the Japanese superstar has outboxed and outpunched opponents. In the Ring Magazine Fight of the Year for 2019, Nonito Donaire put “The Monster” to the test, but in the rematch, he was destroyed in the first two rounds. In December, he defeated Filipino Marlon Tapales to unify all the belts and go undefeated in his 2nd straight weight class. Like with 22 of Inoue’s previous opponents, Tapales proved to be more resilient than expected in that fight, giving it his all in the middle rounds in Tokyo.


Luis Nery Analysis: Problems outside of boxing

At 122 pounds, Nery (35-1, 27 KOs) is probably Inoue’s most dangerous remaining opponent. The southpaw from Tijuana, thanks to his technique and punching strength, has held bantamweight and super bantamweight WBC titles. Ring Magazine 2023 Fight of the Year went to Nery after his amazing 11th-round stoppage victory over Azat “Crazy A” Hovhannisyan in February of last year. It’s reasonable to argue that Luis Nery has had a few more significant problems outside of the ring that have prevented him from becoming the superstar he arguably could have been, despite his clear talent level. Nery’s unprofessional attitude toward boxing led to his 7th round stoppage loss to “The Heartbreaker” Brandon Figueroa in May 2021. Nery had tested positive for a banned substance in his 1st fight versus Shinsuke Yamanaka back in 2017 and had completely missed weight in the rematch.
