Naoya Inoue vs Nonito Donaire UK time: Start time, TV channel and undercard

Noita Inoue and Nonito Donaire’s 2019 meeting in the finale of the World Boxing Super Series was one of the most entertaining bouts of the year.

And they will rematch in Japan this morning with the unified titles once again on the line, this time adding the WBC belt to the ones up for grabs. It’s the exact same venue and weight, with both men staying relatively active throughout the last year.

Inoue is heavily favoured to get a repeat result of his decision victory, with Donaire likely coming towards the end of his legendary decades-long career. He has won world titles at five different weight classes, but is expected not to have enough to deal with Inoue’s heavy pressure and ultimately suffer another defeat.
