The debuting Inoue looked in control from the opening bell and it was clear, within seconds, that the two men weren't ever going to have a competitive match up. Inoue found a home for his left hand very quickly and it was clear that he was going to be able to land at will. Rather than dragging the action out he went for the finish early on and saw off Koel Lapie in just 164 seconds, leaving him down for the count.
After the bout the youngster stated that his intention was to become a world champion, though he is a very long way away from that. Hopefully a return to the ring in early 2016 will see him being given a better test than he was here, as this did little other than showcase his ability in what was, essentially, a cameo win that came hours before his cousins, Naoya Inoue and Takuma Inoue took part in their title defences.
