Japanese boxing champion Nawa Inoue reacted angrily on Wednesday when reports surfaced that his home had been burglarized while he was busy unloading Nanito Donier in a much-anticipated match.

More than a dozen expensive bags and jewelry were stolen from the home of the 29-year-old Bantamweight champion near Tokyo on Tuesday evening, broadcasters TBS and Fuji TV reported, citing unnamed police sources.

Local police declined to confirm details of the case when contacted by AFP.

But it turns out the Thieves took advantage of Inoue’s absence as he defeated the 39-year-old veteran donor to add the WBC Bantamweight World title to his WBA and IBF belts.

Undefeated Japan Boxing Great tweeted annoyed at the apparent reference to the incident.

“What a horrible story on an otherwise celebratory day … everyone beware !!”

On Tuesday, the two were seen fleeing in a white car when they allegedly opened the door of Inoy’s home, TBS reported, adding that police were still pursuing the two.

Inoi, meanwhile, outscored Donier at the end of the first round and then continued to attack the second in a fight at Saitama, north of Tokyo, winning the title in a relentless show of strength.

Donner, nicknamed “Filipino Flash”, was stopped only once in his previous 48 fights.
