HIGHLIGHTS: Donaire vs Vetyeka (WBA featherweight title)
MACAU – Nonito Donaire Jr. wins the WBA featherweight title with a unanimous technical decision.
From the opening bell, Nonito Donaire Jr. looked intent to silence every detractor who had said he was not the in-ring executioner he was in the lower weights. Donaire was landing jabs and overhand rights while not relying as much on his trademark left hooks.
Donaire put his biggest imprint on the fight in round 4, dropping the South African Vetyeka with a left hook halfway into the round.
