MANILA, Philippines – John Real Casimero has vowed to avenge the loss of Nanito Donier to Nova Inouye, who shut down “The Filipino Flash” in the second round of their reunion on Tuesday.
Casimero and Ino were scheduled to meet in the ring in April 2020, but their fight did not go ahead because of the epidemic.
Casimero claimed that the bout was never rescheduled because Inu was afraid to fight him.
“It simply came to our notice then. There will always be a winner and a loser. That’s how boxing works, “Casimero said in a video posted on his social media account on Wednesday.
“Donner did his best to win the battle. But careful friends, no one can beat Nawa Eno except me.
Inoue went on to win the WBC Bantamweight title, adding to his WBA (Super) and IBF belts.
The undefeated Japanese now only plan to become undisputed champions with the WBO crown, currently in the hands of Paul Butler, not the only title in his collection.
Butler was promoted to full champion by the WBO after claiming the interim title in April after winning a unanimous decision against Filipino Jonas Sultan.
Casimiro had the belt before being snatched by the WBO after the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) violated strict medical policy for using weights to lose weight before his mandatory defense against Butler in Liverpool, England.
“Nawa Ino, hopefully we’ll see each other. Donner, I hope you are well. Don’t worry, we’ll be back. To all Filipinos, we will take revenge for what happened to the donor. “
