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

Burnett had begun the fight well, picking his shots and landing several nice jabs before seeming to have Donaire rattled with a vicious one-two in the third round.

Donaire advances to the WBSS semifinal round and will next face Zolani Tete of South Africa, the WBO bantamweight champion, who won his quarterfinal fight against Mikhail Aloyan of Russian Federation last month.

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.

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. Burnett was unable to continue and so the referee stopped the fight. "This tournament gives me an opportunity to showcase my capabilities against the best in this division".

Burnett actually surrendered before the fifth round started after an apparent hip injury he suffered during the fourth round.




The four-division champion will next face WBO titlist Zolani Tete of South Africa early next year. The Irish champion is eager to make a statement by defeating the ring legend and adding his name to his growing resume.

Donaire has a 38-5-0 win-loss-draw ring record including 24 stoppage victories.

Other results saw Inoue stop Jua Carlos Parayano on October 7 and Tete win by decision over Mikhail Aloyan on October 17.

"I see him getting rid of Donaire in the middle to late rounds", he said. "But aside from that I don't really [know much], but I'm very excited for the fight".
