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.
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 Tale of the Tape
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)
