The 'Monster,' also known as Naoya Inoue, has had an incredible rise through the boxing ranks.

Luis Nery has a 35-1-0 professional record and has been a formidable opponent in the Junior Featherweight class. Nery, who is well-known for his strength and talent, has won several knockouts and has been a unified champion.

The Inoue vs. Nery battle is scheduled to take place on May 6 at the Tokyo Dome, according to Mike Coppinger of ESPN. On Monday morning, viewers in the US may watch the action live streamed on ESPN+.

Nery and Inoue are well known for their ability to knock opponents out. Nery has terminated 27 fights in a similar manner to how Inoue has won 23 of his victories by knockout. This battle pits two of boxing's most exciting athletes against one another for more than just the Junior Featherweight title; it's a test of strength, talent, and will.

Nery has more experience, having won all 31 of his fights since making his professional debut in 2012, but Inoue is clearly riding high right now. After failing a drug test in 2017, Nery's career took a hit, but he bounced back hard to win the championship via knockout in the rematch with Shinsuke Yamanaka.

The Inoue vs. Nery bout is anticipated to be a breathtaking exhibition of boxing skill because both boxers are on winning streaks and are recognised for their aggressive fighting styles. Fans are left to wonder: Who will win this titanic struggle as they get ready to fight?
