Inoue put on another sublime display in Glasgow.

Earlier today, Naoya Inoue (17-0, 15 KO’s) and Emmanuel Rodriguez (19-0, 12 KO’s) squared off in the World Boxing Super Series Semi Finals,and IBF/WBA title unification, and Inoue made quick work of the previously undefeated Manny Rodriguez.  Rodriguez was thought to be Inoue’s toughest opponent to date in his young career, but Inoue apparently did not get the message, disposing of Rodriguez in less then 2 rounds.  Rodriguez looked sharp in the first round, walking down Inoue.

Inoue, apparently, was just collecting information in the first round, and he came out strong in the second.  Inoue landed a blistering left hook a third of the way through round two, that sent Rodriguez down to the canvas for the first time in his career.  Rodriguez would get up right away, but on shaky legs.  Inoue then blasted him with a right hand to the body, that put him down for the second time in the round.  Looking almost finished when he got up, Rodriguez was in bad shape.  Inoue sprinted in towards Rodriguez for the finish, and put him down for the thirst time with a flurry of punches.  Rodriguez beat the count and rose up again, but the referee had seen enough and stopped the fight.

Naoya Inoue stays undefeated with a record of 18-0 (16 KO’s), and will advance to the final round of the WBSS to face Nonito Donaire (40-5, 26 KO’s).  He will also take home Rodriguez’ IBF title.  He is now the unified WBA/IBF bantamweight champion, and the lineal Ring Magazine Champion at 118 pounds which was vacant.  Rodriguez is now 19-1 (12KO’s)

Image result for crawford vs benavidezThis past Saturday night October 14 2018, Terence Crawford (34-0, 25 KO’s) proved to everyone why he is the worlds top Pound For Pound fighter, as he defeated Jose Benavidez (27-1, 18 KO’s) to retain his WBO Welterweight title with a 12th round TKO victory.  The fight started off slow, as Crawford was struggling to find his range against the much bigger challenger.  Benavidez was seemingly un phased by any of Crawfords punches in the first few round.  He looked to be walking right through them, and throwing back his own punches.  The first 6 rounds of the fight were pretty hard to score, because even though Crawford was slightly out landing Benavidez, Benavidez was walking him down at will.

The 7th round was the turning point of the fight.  Crawford started going to the body more, and it finally started paying off.  Benavidez was clearly slower at this point, and the 7th round was target practice for Crawford.  He won the fight mentally in that round, and Benavidez had nothing left.  The next few rounds looked like Benavidez just ran out of ideas on how to fight Crawford, and Crawford took advantage, peppering him with combinations.  The 12th and final round was a wild one.  Crawford continued to land punches at will, and towards the end if the round, he nailed Benavidez with an uppercut that put him down.  Benavidez would get up, but Crawford pinned him against the ropes and landed a huge right hook followed by a devastating left hand.  The fight was stopped there, and Crawford retained his WBO Welterweight title.
