McDonnell vs Inoue: Live streaming results and round-by-round coverage

Two world titles are on the line in Tokyo.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

This morning at 7:00 am ET streaming live on ESPN+, we’ll see two world titles on the line from Tokyo, and BLH will be here with round-by-round coverage.

In what is probably the bigger fight for U.S. and certainly U.K. audiences, Naoya Inoue (15-0, 13 KO) moves up to the bantamweight division to challenge Jamie McDonnell (29-2-1, 13 KO) for the WBA “world” title at 118 pounds. If Inoue wins, he’s already expressed a desire to compete in the World Boxing Super Series tournament starting later this year, but first things first, and it’s a new weight for him, against a bigger, taller opponent in McDonnell.

The WBC junior flyweight title will also be up for grabs, as Ken Shiro (12-0, 6 KO) defends against Ganigan Lopez (29-7, 18 KO) in a rematch of their May 2017 bout, where Ken Shiro won the belt via majority decision.

We’ll be here with updates and live coverage. Join us for some Friday morning boxing!
