Nonito Donaire captures WBA World Title after Burnett injury

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

After his latest win, Mr. Donaire, a multiple-division world champion, thanked his supporters while also expressing hope for the fast recovery of Mr. Burnett, who saw his three-fight winning streak come to an end and his reign as champion halted after three title defenses.

Belfast boxer Ryan Burnett has lost his World Boxing Super Series bantamweight quarter-final against Nonito Donaire.

Burnett had fought well for the opening three rounds but was forced to take a knee in the fourth, floored by a back injury that didn't appear to be caused by a punch.

Going down to the bantamweight division for the first time since defeating Omar Narvaez in 2011 will not be a hindrance to his aim of sweeping all the division's world titles, said Donaire, 36.

Burnett is undefeated in 19 fights, with nine knockouts, while 35-year-old Donaire boasts 24 knockouts in 38 wins, against five losses.

Burnett was quoted saying: "I am fighting Nonito Donaire, a great champion".

"I know that I just have have the punch in this division, I just have that scary punch and you just got to watch and see how it really plays out, "Donaire told britishboxing news.co.uk".

Fact is, a 950 United Kingdom pounds bet on Burnett wins just 100 United Kingdom pounds while a 100-pound bet on Donaire gets 575 pounds in return.

Josh Taylor could be back in Glasgow sooner rather than later.

Referee Howard Foster stopped the fight before the start of the fifth round and declared Donaire Jr.as the victor by TKO.

Tete defeated Russian Mikhail Aloyan in their quarterfinals last month.

The victor between Burnett and Donaire takes on Tete in the semifinals.
