How to catch the undisputed super bantamweight contest live from Tokyo this Monday

Undisputed super bantamweight world champion Naoya Inoue will put his titles on the line when he faces off with former two-weight world champion Luis Nery in an anticipated encounter. All the action will unfold from Tokyo Dome, Tokyo, Japan, this May.

The undefeated Kanagawa native will mount the first defense of his WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO titles after he unified the division against Marlon Tapales. He will become only the second man to become undisputed champion across different weight classes in the modern era of boxing.

However, his reign could be short-lived if his rival has anything to say about it. Mexican Nery is looking to return to a country where he has found success before, famously scoring a pair of controversial wins over Shinsuke Yamanaka in both 2017 and 2018.

Those bouts were dogged by a failed drug test and a failure to measure weight, leaving him with unfinished business as he touched down on the far side of the Pacific Ocean.

Elsewhere, Jason Moloney and Yoshiki Takei will play out a bantamweight clash under the roof. Takuma Inoue – Naoya’s younger brother – will face Sho Ishida too, but how can you watch it all? GOAL brings you all the details you need on how to watch Naoya Inoue against Luis Nery this Monday.
