  • Josh Taylor and Ivan Baranchyk are held apart ahead of Saturday's fight

World Boxing Association bantamweight world champion Naoya Inoue beat International Boxing Federation bantamweight champ Emmanuel Rodriguez of Puerto Rico by TKO in the second round in Glasgow on Saturday.

It's official - Nonito Donaire would be facing Japanese knockout artist Naoya Inoue in the World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) final for bantamweight (118 pounds). From the outset, he envisioned a finals with Inoue-10 years younger than the 36-year old Donaire and in the optimal prime of his career-and it taking place in Japan or elsewhere in Asia.

"I feel I'm the best".

"Nonito is a very strong boxer with an impressive career, so I want to come up with a plan for the fight", Inoue said.

Prograis, 30, of the United States, who was in Glasgow to watch the fight, was left encouraged by openings he saw in Taylor. The Beast from Belarus is reminiscent of, his countryman, Kiryl Relikh in respect of his doggedness and tenacity so is a distinct potential banana skin on Taylor's record and I expect him to find success.

The three-division titlist Inoue would put him down two more times before the referee decided that he had seen enough, giving him his 16th KO win in 18 fights without a loss.

They both went at it in an entertaining first round, and Rodriguez showed no signs of being intimidated by "The Monster" as he walked forward throwing shots.

In the late of that innings, the 23-year-old Mosaddek Hossain slammed the fastest ODI half-century in Bangladesh cricket history. The tri-series in Ireland was organised as part of the teams' build-up for the World Cup , starting on May 30 in Britain.

"I came out looking to perform aggressively", said Naoya Inoue.

The Puerto Rican's lack of ring savvy was evident, as he chose to stand in front of Inoue for most of the fight, which could be suicidal for anyone facing a one-punch knockout artist. He's a tall fighter and I'm a tall fighter.

"It is going to be a hell of a fight". “And I could have made it easier on myself.

"He won the first round and I didn't know how it was going to turn out after that".

Paul Butler (29-2, 15 KOs) of Cheshire, UK knocked out Salvador Hernandez Sanchez (14-9-1, 9 KOs) of Chiapas, Mexico via a left hook to the body in the sixth round of a scheduled eight-round Bantamweight fight.
