  • Everyone acknowledges inoue’s power, but now his speed and ring iq has just taken a giant leap on the skills categories. Can tapales offer a real contest? Assuming he undisputes over tapales later, what’s best at 126? Inoue has shown he goes after the best in the division, so would Ramirez be next? Will ramirez unify? Are the beltholders at 126 afraid of each other? What are inoue’s chances at undisputing at 126? What’s inoue’s ceiling is my ultimate question.
