Monsters are real -- just ask Jamie McDonnell.

Monsters are real. Just ask Jamie McDonnell, who was relived of his WBA bantamweight title in merciless fashion as Naoya Inoue needed less than two minutes to score a crushing knockout victory.

At 5’9 to Inoue’s 5’5, McDonnell sought to made it a long-distance affair by pumping the jab and and circling. But Inoue easily breached the distance gap by darting in with a lead left hook to the body. The shot pushed McDonnell to the ropes where Inoue let loose with a quick combination.

McDonnell attempted to regoup by targeting the stomach with a body jab, but was quickly countered by a left hook to the top of the head. The shot wobbled him and a knockdown, via a left hook downstairs, quickly followed.

McDonnell rose and was met with a series of shots punctuated by a left hook for the final knockdown with 1:08 remaining.

The win is improves Inoue’s record to 16-0 (14 KOs) and gives him a third title in as many weight classes at the age of 25.

Expect this to just be the beginning of his reign of terror as the new title-holder will participate in the World Boxing Series bantamweight tournament.

  1. Inoue was brutal, I cant wait for the new WSSB tournament, I think it should be better than the Crusierweight one… Him, GGG, Loma and Crawford easily my favourite fighters to watch right now… Saying that I think the way Jamie had to drain himself was stupidly dangerous, he looked like an old man with terminal illness on the scales!!! I heard he put on nearly 2stone over night or something stupid, thats fckn crazy…
