Nonito Donaire captures WBA World Title after Burnett injury

Nonito Donaire captures WBA World Title after Burnett injury

He went on to finish the round trying to survive Donaire's onslaught but refused to come out for the the 5th round.

Donaire joins the Elite circle of Filipino world boxing champions headed by WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, International Boxing Federation super flyweight titleholder Jerwin Ancajas and WBO minimum weight champion Vic Saludar.

"We loved it at the venue and we have an option on it for the semi-final", Sauerland, who wished Ryan Burnett a speedy recovery following his injury against Nonito Donaire in the other WBSS quarter-final in the bantamweight tournament, told Boxing Scene.

Burnett suffered his first defeat and now carried a 19-1 win-loss record with nine knockouts.

"Burnett is an fantastic fighter".

"As a warrior and as a fighter, you've got a guy like Ryan".

The defending champion Burnett was in control for the first two rounds of action, before Donaire, a multiple-time world champion, rallied in the third and fourth rounds.

Looking disappointed that such a captivating bout had been cut short in this cruel manner, the four-weight world champion extended further condolences in his post-fight interview.

Glenn Murray is their key man, having scored the victor in their last two home games and overall netting six of their 11 goals. In five away games, the Seagulls have won only one game and picked up four points.


The British fighter had early control of the contest but took a knee in the fourth round after seemingly pulling a muscle in his back following a punch he threw at Mr. Donaire.

He hadn't boxed in the 118lbs bantamweight division for the last seven years.

Donaire who hasn't made the 118 pound limit in almost 8 years could be doing harm to his body dropping down full two weight classes at his age but he has told the media that the weight was no issue and he feels fresher than ever.
