    This would be the highest level fight boxing has had in several years if Roman/Inoue happens.

    Winner should fight Inoue, loser should fight JFE.

    Those Inoue have fighting in their blood. Is he related to Mizuki and her brother, Naoki.

    Awesome. I have no problem if they take a couple of fights to build that up. Inoue is still young and doesn't have a lot of fights and should get an American debut first.

    I know, and he done a great job so far, but one other still good fighter for an HBO debut is perfectly fine if they are setting up a huge fight after.

    It's okay but I'm much more of a scotch kind of guy.

    Scotch is good. Heats your body rather nicely. A little sweetness to your lifeforce. Have you had a little swig of it before going to sleep?

    In a perfect boxing world, this fight would outsell Canelo and GGG squash matchups and usher in an era where the best fighters seek out the best challenges in weight classes close to their own. Realistically it will probably just be one of the two best matchups of the year (along with Ward-Kovalev) and it will give hardcore fans something to enjoy.

    probably, but who is there to prepare him for Chocolatito? The only guys I can think of are JFE and maybe Ioka

    actually, Ioka would be perfect, people have been wanting to see them go at it for a while

    Inoue has already been fighting genuinely strong opposition for two years. I think it's clear he's a special talent, and I see no reason for him to wait too much longer. I mean, maybe it's not the best financial decision, but Inoue seems like he'll make plenty boxing in Japan even if he takes a loss or two against the likes of Gonzalez or Estrada.

    Rather see Choclatito vs. Gallo Estrada II first. Kind of surprised that rematch hasn't been booked yet

    Voted Inoue simply because I like him better. I respect him for not padding his record up with nobodies from the start of his pro career and looking for tougher fights so early on.

    Per his Wiki page

    The Japanese code is strong with this one. Why waste your time fighting guys you already know that you can easily beat? Lomachenko sees it the same way. Real recognize real, Roy. Back to you, Jim.

    You're entitled to your opinion but it's not like Gonzalez is facing a list of no hopers either…

    Anyway if they fight inoue gets busted up pretty good. In our gets touched often during the bout and loses that fight imo

    I like Chocolatito too, I just like Inoue better. Right now Roman is considered the consensus #1 P4P fighter in the world by the lists. He's obviously a very skilled fighter.

    The fight with Inoue will define Chocolatito's career.
