How To Watch/Stream Naoya Inoue/Paul Butler Tuesday

Coming up Tuesday night in Tokyo, Japan, unified unbeaten bantamweight champ Naoya “The Monster” Inoue of Japan returns in an undisputed title fight with newly elevated WBO 118 lb. titleholder Paul Butler of England.

The fight is the final significant one of 2022 involving a bid by “The Monster” to become the first ever four belt undisputed bantamweight world champ and we must also write, if he pulls a monumental upset, Butler could be undisputed, too.

Now, Here’s How To See Inoue-Butler:

Subscription based ESPN+ will stream the fight in the United Sates with Top Rank Boxing having a co-promotional deal with Inoue. The fight broadcast will begin at 2:30 a.m. Eastern time with the main event slated to begin at around 6 a.m. Eastern.

In Japan (15 hours ahead of Eastern time), the bout will be available on Hikari TV and streamed on Amazon Prime Japan in primetime.

The only other international outlet is in Australia where Kayo PPV will also have the broadcast Tuesday night there.

We previewed “The Monster’s” likely devastating win over Butler on our most recent “Fight Freaks Unite” Podcast. You can hear Dan Rafael’s thoughts with me by clicking below,

Inoue is huge favorite to not only win (50-1 on the BetUS line), but score the KO over Butler.

Three-division champion Inoue (23-0, 20 KOs), is 29 and holds the WBC, IBF and WBA belts, as well as The Ring title. He was last in the ring for his two round destruction of Nonito Donaire in their June rematch. Meanwhile, the heavy underdog Butler (34-2, 15 KOs), is 33 from England and is the WBO titleholder, having won the interim title by beating Jonas Sultan by decision in Liverpool, England back in April of this year.

Butler has been elevated to the WBO’s world champ after John Riel Casimero of the Philippines has been unable to make 118 lb. and defend his title over the past year.

The last undisputed champion was Panama’s Enrique Pinder, when he unified the WBC and WBA titles in 1972. There has never been a three belt or four belt era undisputed champ.
