Donaire vs Rigondeaux Fight

As early as February 2014, there were buzz all around that a fight between Nonito Donaire and Simpiwe Vetyeka of South Africa is being cooked by Top Rank Promotions as announced at the official blog by Bad Left Hook. It was all thought that May 10 will be the initial schedule but the fight seem to have been actually moved to May 31, 2014 as me and my dad saw in SM Cinema when we watched the live streaming fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley the 2nd time around.

Although nothing much has been heard in the boxing scene for the South African fighter, he’s also been defeated a couple of times too just like Donaire but had gotten up. One of his worse opponents is Hazegawa Hozumi, the Japanese fighter who defeated him for the WBC belt back in 2007. Hazegawa in 2010 fought Fernando Montiel who was knocked out in the 4th round in the first 10 seconds of the fight by the Mexican fighter. On the other hand, Donaire is the only fighter who knocked out Montiel in their duel making the great fighter retire in boxing to this date (2014). Watch the fight between Chris John and Simpiwe Vetyeka / Donaire vs Montiel below.

7 years has passed and it took Vetyeka to other fighters in the likes of Chris John lately whom he defeated via K.O. in the round 6, 4 months ago to capture and hold 2 belts to his credit under his waist, the WBO and IBF crown to which Donaire is after in this fight at the Venetian Macau announced this coming May 31,  2014  from the last fight of Manny Pacquiao against Timothy Bradley where Pacman won April 13, 2014.

Donaire’s last devastating defeat was against Guillermo Rigondeaux back in 2014 but got back via a knockout for the second time against Vic Darchinyan. Nonito definitely sealed the deal with the British champion and could definitely not recover from this knockdown.
