Naoya Inoue (left) defeated Nonito Donaire by unanimous decision in 2019

(JAPAN POOL / JIJI PRESS / AFP)

In November 2019, Naoya Inoue and Nonito Donaire squared off in a head-to-head bantamweight title battle at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. Home favorite Inoue retained his IBF and WBA Super Zones with a unanimous decisive win over 12 rounds, and now the pair are returning to the scene of that glittering collision for a main event rematch with the straps on the line again.

Veteran Donaire (42-6, 28 knockouts) will also put his WBC title on the line, claiming the belt in his next fight after his defeat by Inoue. The 39-year-old Filipino responded to his loss to the Japense by beating Nordie Oubaali last May, then retained the gold with a suspension from Reymart Gaballo in December. Both wins came in the fourth round.

Meanwhile, Inoue (22-0, 19 KOs) has fought three times since beating Donaire, defeating each of those attacks by knockout to remain undefeated. The 29-year-old first saw Jason Moloney in October 2020 with a seventh-round stoppage, then required just three rounds to defeat Michael Dasmarinas last June. Most recently, Inoue stopped Aran Dipaen in December, securing the victory in the eighth round. Follow round-by-round updates of Inoue vs Donaire 2 below, plus live coverage and sub-card results.
