The unification bout of two lightweight Champions (up to 53.5 kg), Japanese Naoi Inoue (19-0, 16 KO) and Filipino John Riel Casimero (29-4, 20 KO) will take place in September, according to promoter Bob Arum (Top Rank).
It was assumed that the winner of the world Boxing super series( WBSS), WBA Super/IBF champion Inoue would fight WBO title holder Casimero on April 25, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event had to be postponed. Insiders previously reported that the fight was postponed to July, but their information was not confirmed.
Arum Says: “If there is an opportunity to hold a show with the audience in September, we will be ready to organize this match at the MGM Grand or Mandalay Bay arena for 2.5-3 thousand fans.”
The promoter also reminded that everything will depend on when Inoue can arrive in the US.

Dillian white offers Engann a two-fight deal: to be fair
British heavyweight Dillian white (27-1, 18 KO) assured that he does not plan to drag top UFC heavyweight from Cameroon Francis Enganna (15-3 in MMA) into his sport. He wants everything to be fair, and they had two fights — one under the rules of Boxing and one under the rules of MMA.
“Look, I’m an honest guy,” Dillian self-advertises in a conversation with TalkSPORT. — That’s why I said right away that we can hold two fights: according to the rules of Boxing and MMA. We can do Boxing, eh (UFC President) Dayna white will do everything in MMA. Then it will be an equal opportunity for each of us. Of course, Francis is sure that he will get an advantage in MMA, and I have no doubt that I will dominate in Boxing, so I am ready to go to his territory if he fights on mine, unlike many other guys.”
“Many people are just scared. Many, but not me, man, “white claims —” I’m ready anytime, anywhere. Many people say that they will do this and that, but they want only their conditions to be met and everything to be in their favor. No way! If I fight this guy the way I say I will give him a fair chance. I really want to give him a chance where he can win. But I also want to beat him on his territory. I don’t have a goal to dominate him just in my sport. I want to knock out Francis in Boxing, then give him a chance in MMA, and I will beat him in both fights. No one in history has ever done this, and I always want to make history.”
