BOXING

Bob Arum, co-promoter of bantamweight (53.5 kg) leader Naoi Inoue of Japan (20-0-0, 17 KO), said he will try to re-organize the unification bout against WBO title holder Filipino John Casimero (30-4- 0, 21 KO).

Recall that the boxers were supposed to fight in the middle of spring, but the event fell through due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“His Japanese promoters said they intend to give him a fight in February or March. Yes, it will be the first quarter of next year,” Arum told Business Mirror. “And I think Casimero is a very good option for him.”
