Photos: Inoue's History Making WBC Title Win in Tokyo

Ota-City General Gymnasium, Tokyo, Japan - 20-year-old Naoya Inoue (6-0, 5KOs) made history in Japan, in only his sixth fight, he knocked out two-time world champion, and one of the best in the lower weight divisions, Adrian Hernandez (29-3-1, 18KOs), in six rounds to capture the WBC junior flyweight title.

Inoue was in control of the action during the contest and dropped Hernandez in the sixth with a big shot. Hernandez made it up and the referee felt he was too hurt to properly defend himself and waved it off.
