Inoue vs. Butler LIVE! Boxing Fight Stream, TV Channel, Latest Updates and Undercard Results

Naoya Inoue is the heavy favorite to become the first undisputed bantamweight champion of boxing’s four-belt era today – and the first-ever Asian four-belt champion. ‘The Monster’ welcomes Paul Butler to Tokyo’s Ariake Arena in hopes of adding the WBO belt to his collection of WBA, IBF and WBC titles at 118 pounds.

The undefeated pound-for-pound phenom is a formidable knockout artist with 20 stoppages in a 23-fight career who has already won world titles in three different weight classes. Butler is a massive underdog who has remained admirably fearless in the face of a huge challenge, confident of pulling off one of the biggest upsets a British fighter has ever faced.

The ‘Baby Faced Assassin’ is on his second world reign having been promoted to full champion earlier this year after John Riel Casimero was stripped, after initially winning interim gold after against Jonas Sultan in April. Takuma Inoue, Yoshiki Takei and Satoshi Shimizu all picked up wins on the undercard, along with 2020 Olympian Peter McGrail and Andy Hiraoka.

Live updates


It’s time for walks in the ring!

Butler first, Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger screaming as he goes for the Rocky theme.

He’s not as big an underdog here as Sly Stallone vs. Apollo Creed, but some would have you believe it’s not that far off!


Inoue – no longer sporting that bleached hair – looks set to put on a show as he menacingly wanders backstage at his dressing room in Tokyo, working the pads with his father and coach.

Ring walks for the main event are now imminent at Ariake Arena, where an eager crowd wants to see ‘The Monster’ make history as Asia’s first four-belt world champion.

He would only become the 11th undisputed champion in boxing history.


Inoue, let no one forget, is an incredible 18-0 in world title fights – with that formidable run including 16 knockouts.

He is 23-0 overall as a professional with 20 knockouts and is the huge favorite to continue that streak early on here, becoming the first undisputed men’s bantamweight world champion in the four era. belts.

Three-division world champion Inoue is arguably the best boxer on the planet right now, although there are obvious arguments for Terence Crawford, Oleksandr Usyk, Errol Spence, Tyson Fury and Canelo Alvarez.

It’s a gargantuan challenge awaiting experienced Cheshire two-time world champion Butler, who doesn’t seem overwhelmed by the scale of the task and believes he can win if the fight goes beyond six rounds.

If successful, it would be one of the biggest shocks seen in boxing for many years.

Hiraoka stops Jung in the eighth round

Let’s go !

It’s the Hiraoka we’ve come to expect as he takes down Jung with a nasty left uppercut early in the eighth.

Jung gets to his feet but looks very unsteady and Hiraoka feels the finish, closes in and nails him with a right uppercut before swinging around the left as a knockout blow.

In fact, it looked like the left hadn’t landed flush, but that was enough to put this contest aside. Explosive stuff.

Hiraoka moves to 22-0 as a pro with his 17th career knockout. A third trip to the United States awaits you?


Hiraoka versus Jung

Round 7

Better variety of Hiraoka, which is able to better disguise its attacks a few times up close, with good success.

Something hurt Jung, and it looks like he was riding high instead.


Hiraoka versus Jung

Round 6

A little more urgency from Jung in sixth, he tries to push forward and use his obvious speed when he can.

Hiraoka is in control and well ahead of the cards, but needs to pick up the pace a bit and start making progress in the gears.

Always throwing too many single shots.

A man with 16 knockouts should surely be able to inflict more damage on an opponent who is advancing as dangerously as Jung.

He’s so open to hard knocks on the counter, even though his speed makes him dangerous and difficult to train at times.


Hiraoka versus Jung

An accidental low kick injures Jung early in the sixth.

We also had a few near misses in terms of head collisions as both men rushed forward at the same time, narrowly avoiding a painful clash.

Jung takes a few seconds to recover from being hit below the belt and is now ready to continue.


Hiraoka versus Jung

Round 5

The best round of the fight by far for Hiraoka.

He landed a lead left hand almost instantly after the first bell of the fifth, then quickly drove Jung a right to a scathing left counter.

As expected, he’s vulnerable to walking straight into those shots with the risky way he attacks.

Hiraoka has great success with the left throughout the round, starting to piece together good combinations.


Hiraoka versus Jung

Round 4

Hiraoka is really the aggressor and mostly controls the jab fight, but again in the fourth Jung shows his potential prowess with some quick forward moves as he looks to plant that right.

He throws the lead left then immediately comes swinging with the big right hand, but does indeed leave himself very open to counters in the process.

It’s a messy approach, that’s for sure.
