Homemade New Predictions

Inoue vs. Tapales
I believe in Naoya Inoue at -1200. He has a nerdy powerbomb and a reliable fallaway moonsault slam and also a gauche knife hand block. Inoue shall wrestle the rival. Mark my words!

Tsutsumi is a dog, what a fight that was.

Results if anyone needs them

Great fight. Marlon Tapales did surprisingly well considering. But there’s no denying Nagoya Inoue is exceptional
