Flash in the Philippines catches the WBA ball thicker from Ireland's Ryan Burnett, who has a back injury
MANILA, Philippines – There was no way for Nonito Donaire to end Ryan Burnett's writer, but ultimately, the Philippine Flash was again enjoying the World Cup.
Burnett suffered a back injury and could not get on the chair in the fourth round, and on November 3 at Glasgow, Scotland, Donaire gave the World Boxing Association bantamweight crown.
In addition to the 7th World Championships, the 4-champion champion became World Series Super Series semi-final against the Zolani Tete champion of the South African World Cup.
Having left right in the fourth with 50 seconds straight, Burnett slammed on his knees, pressed pain, beat counting, and dropped from Donaire to the corner.
He was still injured, Burnett stretched from Oxygen to SSE Hydro Arena, with a dirty Donaire, now 38-5, with 25 knockouts, and kept the ropes at the fallen champion.
Donaire, who turned 36 on November 16, praised his 26-year-old, who tasted the defeat for the first time after 19 victories, with 9 knockouts.
"I do not want to win that, but victory is a win," Donaire said, recalling Burnett. "He was fast, strong, and was busy with a good punch."
The first three rounds were close, both warriors hit a huge blow.
Donaire's first fight was 7 years and dropped 8 pounds when another Irishman, Carl Frampton, lost on April 21.
Donaire later said, "First of all, I would like to acknowledge and thank God and my archangel for all that he has brought me tonight, and then I would like to send the prayers of healing to Ryan Burnett and thank him for sharing the ring with me, healing and coming back soon the ring! "

Next I would like to pass the prayers of healing to Ryan Burnett and thank him for sharing the ring with me. I know he will recover and soon return to the ring. pic.twitter.com/cJoOulLnVW

While Burnett's injuries appeared in the fourth, probably at the end of the 3rd round, the evil left hook delivered by Donaire was triggered.
According to BBC.com, Burnett complained to coach Adam Booth that during the break he could not move and "can not shoot".
Burnett was indeed in disadvantage after winning the gold medal at the Singapore Olympic Games in Singapore and has been out for more than a year and stopped until 2012.
Now Donaire said he wanted to enjoy Scotland with his wife Rachel and his sons Jarel Michaelel and Jarel Logan.
