Classy Inoue lets Donaire take Muhammad Ali Trophy home to his children

After a war fit for the moniker of the World Boxing Super Series Final, Naoya Inoue showed his class by allowing Nonito Donaire fulfil his promise to his children to bring home the Muhammad Ali Trophy.

By Dean Goulding   - @deangoulding

For 12 rounds, Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire and Naoya "The Monster" Inoue put on a show many are calling fight of the year in the final of the bantamweight edition of the World Boxing Super Series.

The two warriors took turns hurting one another throughout an intense, electrifying battle until the very end. At the final bell, a switch flicked and the pair exchanged throwing punches with the intention of rendering the other unconscious for an embrace epitomising the mutual respect between two great fighters.

Such is the class and respect of these two champions that Inoue, who had fought for the better part of two years to get his hands on the coveted Muhammad Ali Trophy and finally did so in front of his home fans in Japan, handed it over to the beaten Donaire and allowed him to take it home overnight.

Donaire had promised his children that he would bring the trophy home, hoping his will and self-belief would lead him to victory in Saitama's Super Arena. The victory was not to be, but Inoue, native of a country that prides itself on honour and respect, let Donaire take the trophy back to his children to fulfil his pre-fight promise.

According to the Philippine Star, Donaire stated:

"I went to Japan to take the Muhammad Ali Trophy. I promised my sons they would see it in the morning. And with tears in my eyes, I humbly asked Inoue to borrow it for a night; not for me, but for my word."

In an age where trash talking and gimmicks are the norm in our sport, it's refreshing to see two fighters at the top of the game display genuine humility and respect.
