20 year-old Takuma Inoue is came off a hard fought unanimous decision win over tough and former world rated Filipino Froilan Saludar yesterday (Sept 4th) in Kanagawa Japan. He was dropped in 1st round but scored knockdowns himself in 8th and 9th round to retain his unblemished record and get a crack to Tapales' world title.

Takuma Inoue who has a record of  8 wins no defeat with 2 KOs. He is a natural superflyweight fighter and will move up in bantamweight to face Tapales.
