It's almost like a mirror image of the everyone-gets-a-trophy mentality (except this homely trophy looked like the offspring of a Slinky and the wrestler Gold Dust). Props to both Inoue and Donaire for their roles.

And in case you didn't see it -- understandable, since it was on DAZN live from Japan at 7:30 a.m. our time yesterday -- the fight was pretty ace too. Young warrior assassin vs. the lion in winter, but between 2 guys who if they passed you on the street would look like middle-school students.

Neither one looked too good at the end of all 12. Donaire looked like Rocky Dennis and Inoue had a bloody nose and a resplendently stitch-worthy gash over his right eye. The Filipino Flash even managed to survive what I think was a prototype liver shot, getting hit then dropping to a knee after a couple of steps and barely beating the ten count.

Although Inoue got the UD, I don't think he outright dominated too many rounds. Donaire still had enough left in the tank to pop him with some solid counter lefts and bilateral jabs that threw off the Monster's usual turbocharged seek and destroy assault; in fact, I don't think any of the boxing beat guys had Donaire going past 6 rounds. If this was his last stand, he went out in style.
