Las Vegas - You wanna know about the best pound-for-pound fighter? Yea, Canelo is in the mix, so is Vasyl Lomachenko, Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. But my guy is from Japan, and you might not have seen him fight yet. His name is Naoya Inoue, or "The Monster," and simply put, he is a 118 pound WRECKING BALL! Inoue is a YUGE favorite, and depending on where you shop, anywhere from -$650 (Westgate) to -$800 (Treasure Island). Just like the Canelo fight, we can not wager at such a steep price, so, we're gonna go back to Prop City. The Monster is a three-weight world champion and currently a unified bantamweight world champion. I've been watching the square ring for a few decades, and have only seen maybe two or three guys that throw BOMBS to the body like Naoya. Seriously, go to YouTube and type in his name. You'll be, as David Letterman used to say, MesMOrized. He is 18-0, SIXTEEN by KO! Naturally, the prop we like is Inoue by a knockout at +$250. And you can back it up with "The Monster" by a TKO at -$200. If you're wondering about the difference between a KO and a TKO, here's the dilly yo. If the opponent is knocked out (KO) and is unable to get up before the ref counts to 10, that's a KO. If the opponent is injured during the fight and is unable to go on, it is considered a TKO. The are only two problems with the fight. The time. Since it's over in Japan, it will not start till 5:00 a.m. Thursday morning on the East Coast, or 2:00 a.m. here in Vegas. Get your Tivo ready. The other problem is, Nonito Donaire is Filipino. My wife is also Filipino. PLZ don't tell her that I'm ALL OVER Inoue, or it's the couch for a MONTH!!!
