‘Monster’ Naoya Inoue stops IBF champ Emmanuel Rodriguez to set up Nonito Donaire showdown and Josh Taylor dropped Ivan Baranchyk twice on his way to winning the IBF world title and booking his place in the WBSS final.
Inoue and Taylor advance to the finals after Monster night in Glasgow
‘Monster’ Naoya Inoue stops IBF champ Emmanuel Rodriguez to set up Nonito Donaire showdown and Josh Taylor dropped Ivan Baranchyk twice on his way to winning the IBF world title and booking his place in the WBSS final.
Japan's phenomenon Naoya Inoue needed just two rounds to blast his way past Puerto Rico’s Emmanuel Rodriguez in the World Boxing Super Series bantamweight semi-final at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow.
The ‘Monster’ lived up to his reputation and added the IBF title and Ring belt to his WBA strap after sending Rodriguez to the canvas three times in the second round.
“I always felt like I could knock him out and that’s what I fought for,” said Inoue.
His mind-blowing performance sets up a clash with the 'Filipino Flash' Nonito Donaire in the WBSS bantamweight final.
“Nonito Donaire is a terrific fighter. He can box well, he can punch well. I'm confident I will beat him, although I’m not quite sure of my strategy just yet.”
“It was an incredible fight,” said Donaire on Inoue’s show. “I am looking forward to the final, this is the type of fight that I wanna be in. I always seek to fight the best of the best. The one with the best game plan wins the final.“
Scotland’s ‘Tartan Tornado' Josh Taylor earned his first world title after producing a career-best performance against the tough Belarusian, ‘The Beast’ Baranchyk, and the unanimous decision verdict via scores of 117-109 and two times 115-111 means he is on to face WBA titleholder Regis Prograis in the super-lightweight final of the WBSS.
“I took more risks than I should have,” said Taylor. “And I could have made it easier on myself. If I had more time in the sixth round I would have stopped him. It was easy peasy.
“I'm so delighted of winning a world title and I can't wait for the final now. I think I'm the best, Regis Prograis thinks he is the best. I am confident of going all the way.”
“It was an excellent fight,” said Prograis, who was watching from ringside. “But I am the best in the division and I will beat Taylor and take home the Ali Trophy.”
The WBSS returns on June 15 with a sensational doubleheader at the Arena Riga in Riga, Latvia: Mairis Briedis vs Krzysztof Glowacki and Yunier Dorticos vs Andrew Tabiti for spots in the cruiserweight final.

***Thorslund and Ashley make weight ahead of WBC World title contest***
Oscar Valdez puts his WBO Featherweight title on the line and steps up against arguably his most dangerous opponent to date, former World Super Bantamweight Champion, Scott Quigg. This bout has gone somewhat under the radar, given that a certain pound-for-pound elect is fighting in San Antonio, Texas. Even in Quigg's home country of England, the build-up has gone by almost relatively unnoticed, but make no mistake; this is a fight that deserves some due care and attention.
The March of the heavyweights slows down this week, allowing our attention to move across to the light welterweight division. The bright lights of New York City are replaced by the vast city of San Antonio, Texas. In a fight that could produce a shootout worthy of the Alamo.
