The first bout on today's excellent "Super Boxeo" card looked like a huge step up in class for Japanese teenage Takuma Inoue (4-0, 1) instead however the bout was a showcase as he dominated former world title challenger Nestor Daniel Narvaes (20-3-2, 9) in an 8 round bout. The youngster dominated form start to end and deserved the win with as comprehensive a victory as has been scored over Narvaes with scores reading 80-72, twice, and 80-73.
Takuma, the younger brother of Naoya Inoue, was expected to be forced to work hard here against a man who had fought previously in Japan, pushing then Flyweight champion Toshiyuki Igarashi very close back in 2012. Instead it was an exhibition from the recently turned 19 year old who moved when he wanted to, fought when he wanted to and just seemed too good, too fast, too accurate and too clean hitting for the Argentinian.
With this win we see the Inoue family go 1-0 up against the Narvaez family. In a few hours time we will see the second of the bouts between the families as Naoya attempts to claim the WBO Super Flyweight title against Nestor's older brother, Omar Andres Narvaez. If Naoya makes things as easy as his brother did then it's hard to ignore Shingo Inoue as the 2014 trainer of the year, not just in Japan but world wide.
