Donaire is world champ again

Boxing News: Donaire dethrones Burnett for WBA bantam title » November 3, 2018

Four-division champion Nonito Donaire attempts to join the country's growing list of world champions today when he challenges Ryan Burnett for the World Boxing Association bantamweight crown at the13,000-capacity SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.

Donaire, a former four- weight champion, said: "Burnett is a smart, rugged guy and I don't doubt what he's capable of, so I will use everything in my capabilities to take that away".

Now with the win, Donaire advances to the World Boxing Super Series semifinals where he will have a shot at reclaiming the WBO title when he faces Zolani Tete.

As promised, Donaire made weight on his first try, tipping the scales at 117.7 pounds on Friday, slightly lighter than Burnett's 117.8, and heading to his 17th world title appearance. "This tournament gives me an opportunity to showcase my capabilities against the best in this division".

Former four-weight world champion Donaire, dropping down from featherweight to fight in the bantamweight for the first time in seven years, showed great sportsmanship to check on a shell-shocked Burnett after dethroning him in such unusual circumstances.

Donaire was on the front foot in the third, but Burnett continued to come forward in a contest which was bubbling up nicely until being so cruelly cut short.

The 26-year-old Burnett, on the other hand, has an unblemished 19-0-0 win-loss-draw slate with 24 knockout victories.

Burnett knows that, of course, saying that Donaire is going to be his toughest test.

Tete defeated Russian Mikhail Aloyan in their quarterfinals last month. "Early on he just kept coming at me", said Donaire after the fight.
