The Top Rank chief Bob Arum already work with the japanese Naoya Inoue. After Inoue won the WBSS final in bantamweight announced that the Top Rank and he contracted for more years. Arum wants that Inoue will be a superstar in the world.

“Naoya Inoue is a generational talent, the sort of fighter who comes around once a decade. He is already a superstar in Japan, and he will be major star stateside in no time. You are looking at an all-time great who is entering the prime of what will be a historic career.” – said Arum.

Arum’s other favourite fighter is the ukranian phenom, Vasyl Lomachenko. Arum wants a super-fight between two fighters in the near future. They are both 3-weight world champions, and now Loma is the #2 in The Ring Magazine P4P ranking, Inoue is the #4 in this ranking.

Now Inoue fighting in bantamweight but probably he will move up to super bantamweight. Lomachenko in lightweight in this time but he said more times that he would like to move back at super featherweight. So maybe they can fight to each other within a few years. According to Arum this fight will be the Fight of the Century.
