Naoya Inoue vs. Luis Nery SBG Odds Overview

Top Rank Chairman Bob Arum has worked hard to put this event together. While it was not easy it appears to be worth it. Inoue is a strong marquee man who will boost attendance and online betting action. To illuminate, gamblers have not hesitated to get down early on the Inoue vs. Nery matchup. But the most activity is expected in the days leading up to Monday’s championship fight.

Arum said that Naoya Inoue is the world’s best fighter. He considers him a boxer that never ceases to amaze Arum every time he steps in the ring. On the other hand, Arums says that Luis Nery is a tough challenger. However, Aruim fully expects Inoue to get the job done. Also, he expects the fight to draw more than 50,000 fans at the Tokyo Dome. Of course, Arum’s company co-promotes Inoue along with Ohashi Promotions. Arum touted what he calls an incredible main event.

Inoue became Japan’s first-ever two-division undisputed champion after a tenth-round knockout of Marlon Tapales. Specifically, their December 26 Ring/undisputed122-pound championship took place at Ariake Arena. Correlate that venue housed his last four Boxing odds bouts. Of great concern is that Ionoe’s team was disappointed that thousands of fans were left out because of overwhelming ticket demand. Cause by fan demand, a much larger site was required for his next fight at home. Thus, the decision was made for boxing to return to the Tokyo Dome.

The venue boasts an attendance record of 74,500. Although it is regularly scaled to house up to 55,000 fans. Previously, the famed locale hosted a pair of heavyweight championships featuring unbeaten, undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Of course, the most notable was his monstrous February 1990 knockout defeat to Buster Douglas. A global shocker at the time, it remains the benchmark for historic boxing upsets.

Inoue has won titles at 108, 115, 118, and 122 pounds. Now, he will attempt his second overall junior featherweight title defense. His 122-pound takeover began with an eighth-round stoppage of unbeaten WBC/WBO titlist Stephen Fulton. Accordingly, that bout was held on July 25, 2023 in Tokyo. Luis Nery will enter the fight in hopes of becoming a three-time titlist spanning two weight divisions.

Previously, Nery held the WBC junior featherweight belt. However, he lost to Brandon Figueroa via seventh-round knockout in May 2021. It remains the lone career defeat for the 29-year-old southpaw. Since then, he has won four straight.

In sum, the list of wins was his Fight of the Year eleventh-round stoppage of Azat Hovhannisyan. That bout was held on February 18, 2023, in Pomona, California. In turn, that bout was a WBC title eliminator, which paved the way for this showdown. Nery’s most recent win came last July 8, when he scored a second-round knockout of Froilan Saludar in Metepec, Mexico.

In this spot, Nery brings a massive underdog price and the ability to score an upset.
