Japan's Naoya Inoue, who became the world's undisputed bantamweight champion in December, faces WBC and WBO super bantamweight champion Stephen Fulton of the United States on July 25.

Will the first Japanese boxer to unify all four major titles in the bantamweight division be able to overcome the American and claim a victory in the super bantamweight division? If he wins, he will be only the second Japanese to win titles in four different weight categories.
