"MONSTER" INOUYE LIVES UP TO THE HYPE
By Scott Shaffer

Naoya Inouye TKO6 Antonio Nieves... Japan's Naoya "Monster" Inouye lived up to the massive hype in his American debut, stopping a courageous but outgunned Antonio Nieves in six one-sided rounds in Carson, California.  In retaining the WBO 115-pound championship, Inouye (14-0) showed speed, a high work rate and explosive punching power, knocking Nieves (17-2-2) down once and convincing Nieves' trainer to end the suffering after the sixth round.  Inouye threw 407 punches in six rounds, outlanding Nieves 118-45 according to Compubox.  Inouye quickly established his dominance, showing scary power for a 115-pounder.  By round five, Nieves was in survival mode, and an Inouye left hook to the body put him down.  Inouye kept throwing to the body and Nieves was strong enough to survive, but returned to his corner looking dejected. In round six, it was clear Nieves would not quit, and Inouye began to showboat in between hard combinations.  With only punishment ahead for Nieves, his longtime trainer wisely saved him for another day. At age 24, Inouye is already a two-division champion and hopefully will get to unify his titles with the winner of tonight's main event between Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Roman Gonzalez.  source: hbo
