We all know that Naoya Inoue is one of the best young fighters on the planet and he'll be looking to prove how good he is on December 30th when he battles Omar Andres Narvaez for the WBO Super Flyweight title. Naoya isn't the only talented youngster in the family however and his younger brother, Takuma Inoue (3-0, 1), will be hoping to prove his talent on Tuesday as well. Takuma, a prodigious talent at just 19 years old, will be hoping to make a family double as he battles Omar's younger brother Nestor Daniel Narvaes (20-2-2, 9), himself a former world title challenger.
On paper this looks like an incredibly tough test for Takuma however Paddy Power have effectively called the bout a foregone conclusion as they have priced him at a ridiculous 1/16. That's effectively saying Takuma has won before they even set foot in the ring. For those picking the upset however it does make the market interesting with Narvaes being priced at 17/2, a lovely return if he can derail Takuma's rise through thr ranks.
For those who expect a closer fighter the draw is 20/1 with Paddy Power.
