Stephen Fulton’s Betting Outlook vs Inoue

Fulton returns after over a year away from competing inside the ring and fights outside the US for the first time.

He aims to make the sophomore defense of this pair of belts in the coming days. This bout fits nicely within a week that also features Terence Crawford vs Errol Spence, and it looks to be a monumental Summer for the sweet science community.

The unified super bantamweight champ clashes with the former undisputed bantamweight champ here in Inoue.

‘Cool Boy Steph’ clashes with a pound-for-pound ranked pugilist with a near ninety percent finishing rate in the sport.

Naoya Inoue’s Betting Outlook vs Fulton

Inoue steps up in weight for this challenge here as he aims to become a world champion across a fourth division.

He is one of the most excited, multi-faceted, and proven fighters in the sport who already has a deep resume but Inoue clearly hungers for more.

YouTube video

Both 122-pounders are undefeated and barring a draw in the coming days, someone’s 0 has got to go.

This is a compelling clash of styles, with Inoue being a hugely prolific KO artist while Fulton has a high fight IQ-minded, smooth approach. Can Fulton show composed, mobile defensive responsibility or will Inoue impose his will to halt the champ as he has done to most of his professional opponents?

Stephen Fulton vs Naoya Inoue Prediction

This incredible prizefight is scheduled for twelve rounds, and I think seeking out the prop bet on this fight not going the distance represents good value (-120).

Fulton sometimes has a propensity to get drawn into a firefight and indulge an entertaining fight. Doing that with someone who has the one-shot finishing ability and chipping-away approach of Inoue will likely not bode well for the defending titleholder here.

Ultimately, I believe there’s value in pursuing prop bets on Inoue winning via KO or TKO (+100).

Pick: Naoya Inoue (-340)
