TOKYO — WBO super flyweight champion Naoya Inoue ended a one-year sabbatical from the ring with a dominant second round knockout of Warlito Parrenas at the Ariake Colosseum.
Naoya, who was sidelined for a year with a hand injury, started slow in the opening round. But in the second, Inoue floored Parrenas with a right hook. A succession of left hooks put Parrenas down again and forced the referee to halt the contest.
Inoue improves to 9-0 (8 KOs).
