Inoue (23-0, 20KOs) quickly aligned Donier with his right hand just before the end of the first round and sent “The Filipino Flash” twice in the second round to close the rematch of their integration.

Inoue, 29, who is 10 years younger than Donner, easily defended his WBA (Super) and IBF belts and is now trying to be an undisputed champion.
