Dasmariñas gets crack at Inoue before Casimero, Donaire

WBA/IBF/The Ring World Bantamweight Champion Naoya Inoue is now the target of newly-minted WBC champion Nonito Donaire and WBO king John Riel Casimero. 

But before they can do so, another Filipino gets a shot at Inoue. Michael Dasmarinas will face him on June 20 at the Virgin Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dasmariñas began training at the Wild Card Gym for the final stretch of his camp.

Also with him are Tacy Macalos and Vilma Acosta.

Dasmarinas (30-2-1, 20KOs) will be fighting for the first time in the States. The furthest place he has been booked in is South Africa.

He last fought back in October of 2019, defeating Artid Bamrungauea in Valenzuela City.

Inoue (20-0, 17KOs) is just eight months off from his beatdown of Jason Moloney.

Meanwhile, Casimero will defend his crown against Guillermo Rigondeaux on August 20.
