Review: 2014-09-05, some good exchanges between Naoya Inoue and Samartlek Kokietgym but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two. The 21-year-old undefeated Naoya Inoue entered this fight with a boxing record of 6-0-0 (5 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.1 light flyweight in the world, he has already fought once in 2014 beating Adrian Hernandez in a bout valid for the WBC light-Flw belt (=Hernandez vs Inoue).
His opponent, Samartlek Kokietgym, has a record of 17-4-0 (5 knockouts) and he entered as the No.61 in the same weight class but he has not faced any notable opponents in his professional career. Inoue vs Kokietgym is valid for the WBC light flyweight title (Inoue’s first defense) first world title shot for Samartlek; undercard of Akira Yaegashi vs Roman Gonzalez.
