BRAVE BURGLARS reportedly stole dozen of items from feared boxer Naoya Inoue’s home yesterday as he was knocking out Nonito Donaire.
The 29-year-old Japanese star proved he is still the king of the bantamweight division following a brutal second-round KO victory in his rematch.
The pair renewed their rivalry at the historic Saitama Super Arena early on Tuesday morning – nearly three years after their 2019 Fight of the Year.
Inoue retained his grip on his IBF and Ring Magazine titles in their first meeting courtesy of a unanimous decision victory.
But he went one better second time around – knocking Donaire out in the second round of their Saitama showdown.
However, reports from his homeland have now claimed that his house was being ransacked while he was in action.
