Inoue training injury forces postponement of junior featherweight super fight against Stephen Fulton

Stephen Fulton’s WBO/WBC junior featherweight world title defence against Naoya Inoue — originally scheduled for Sunday, May 7, at Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan — has been postponed due to a training injury suffered by Inoue.

Fulton-Inoue will be rescheduled for July, with a new date to be announced in due course.

The main event and undercard bouts will stream live and exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+.

Fulton (21-0, 8 KOs) will make his third world title defense and second as a unified champion since defeating Brandon Figueroa in one of the best fights of 2021.

Inoue (24-0, 21 KOs), the sport’s pound-for-pound king, is a three-division world champion who is making his junior featherweight debut after defeating Paul Butler last December to become the undisputed bantamweight world champion.
