Stake, the world’s fastest-growing cryptocurrency betting and gaming operator, is excited to announce its sponsorship of the upcoming bantamweight title rematch between Naoya Inoue and Nonito Donaire on June 7th in Tokyo, Japan. The pair’s fight in 2019, won by Inoue, was named ESPN’s Fight of the Year and this year’s WBA, IBF and WBC title fight is one of boxing’s most eagerly anticipated rematches of recent years.
The world bantamweight contest will take place at the 36,000 capacity Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo, which has previously hosted high-profile UFC and NBA events, and will be screened to fight fans live across Japan exclusively on Amazon Prime.
The contest marks Stake’ second high profile boxing sponsorship in Japan in recent months, with the brand having previously been ringside for April’s World Middleweight unification bout between Gennady Golovkin and Ryōta Murata, underling Stake.com’s continuing commitment to supporting the biggest occasions in global boxing.
As the official betting partner of the event, Stake branding will feature heavily in the ring and across the stadium inventory. The brand will also be offering market-leading odds and double winnings on fight winner bets if the match ends in a KO/TKO on any of the Stake logos displayed around the ring.
This latest partnership complements Stake.com’s extensive global sports sponsorship portfolio including deals with the UFC, soccer legend Sergio Aguero and English football club Watford FC, along with international multi-platinum artist Drake.
Dominic Rae, Sponsorships Manager for Stake, said: “We’re delighted to continue to support the biggest events in boxing across the globe and are very excited to become the official betting partner for Naoya Inoue vs Nonito Donaire.
“Like all boxing purists, everyone at Stake.com can’t wait for the rematch and hope this fight is every bit as memorable as the first brilliant bout between these two elite fighters.”
