TBC Talks To Naoya Inoue – This Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, WBO world super flyweight champion Naoya Inoue of Japan makes his debut in the United States as he defends his title against Antonio Nieves.
At 24 years old, Inoue is 13-0 as a professional and he has already captured world titles in two weight classes. Inoue comes with a vast amateur background and he has been pinned with the label “prodigy” in his native Japan. This match is important to Inoue, who is looking to do what other highly regarded champions in Japan have failed to do and that is leave their comfort zone.
Our intrepid cameraman Marcelino Castillo is on the scene as always and here he catches up with Japanese star Naoya Inoue. Castillo gets the assist from our Spanish-language correspondent Diego Morilla who puts the work in using English. Thanks Diego, for a chance to meet the soft spoken Japanese champion.
