Naoya Inoue vs. Nonito Donaire - CompuBox Punch Stats”

Nonito Donaire Jr. fell short in his attempt to score an upset over fancied Japanese boxing champion Naoya Inoue on Thursday in the World Boxing Super Series bantamweight tournament final at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

In addition to the prestige of the Muhammad Ali Trophy, Inoue also collects over a $1 million purse bonus for having captured the WBSS championship.

"I think Donaire is a true champion", Inoue said.

Inoue quickly demonstrated the power that earned his "Monster" nickname, knocking Donaire off balance in the second.

Inoue's accuracy (36% overall, 33% jabs, 40% power) was excellent, as was his jab (28 attempts/9.2 connects per round to Donaire's 27.4/3.5) and far quicker footwork, but the almost 37-year-old Donaire still landed 36% of his power punches and acquitted himself far better than most expected. "He's very strong. I [was] victorious, but I'm not the greatest all-time yet".

Donaire opened a cut above Inoue's right eye with a left hook in the second round. I think I have to go over [the fight] and get stronger.

Finally in the 11th round, came the first knockdown of the fight, as Inoue landed a couple of big punches and eventually, scored with a left to the liver that staggered Donaire. He won the 10th round, again effectively scoring with the jab and the straight right hand, as it looked as though Donaire was wearing out. Donaire was unable finish off Inoue and his best opportunity for a KO was lost.

Inoue emptied the gas tank in the 12th and final round in trying to put Donaire (40-6, 26 KOs) away.

The eleventh round had Inoue almost stopping Donaire with a vicious body shot that had him forced to take a knee and try to recover. "I will keep fighting, I want to be the strongest of all time". Donaire was damaged but he refused to quit, got up and continued on to survive the round.

Inoue, who boosted his record to 19-0 with 16 KOs, was all praises for Donaire, a four-division champion who might even consider retirement as an option.
