Supposedly the Thai had come into the bout as a Muay Thai champion, something that made Mr Ohashi assume he would last a few rounds with Inoue, but instead he looked totally out of his depth from the opening seconds. Less than a minute into the round a counter right hook from Inoue sent the Thai down for the count and ended the bout disappointingly quickly.
Following the bout Inoue admitted that he was wanting more of a fight, but it was revealed that he will be back in the ring in August, fighting on august 30th against Japanese ranked foe Cristiano Aoqui (11-6-2, 7) [青木クリスチャーノ]. It was hinted that if he wins that he will be getting a title fight before the year is over, potentially in December on what's expected to be a stacked Ohashi card to see out 2017.
Given the performance of the Thai, who's record was reportedly 13-6-1 (3), it's likely he will find himself added the the JBC's prohibited boxers list and it's likely that anyone will be in a rush to use him as an opponent in the near future.
