Donaire crowned new WBA bantam king

New WBA bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire hopes Ryan Burnett can make a swift recovery after a freak back injury ended the Northern Irishman's unbeaten record.

The Filipino Flash Nonito Donaire Jr captured another world title when he defeated Irish former WBA bantamweight world champion Ryan Burnett in a weird circumstance Saturday night (Sunday morning in Manila) at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, United Kingdom in the bantamweight quarterfinal of the World Boxing Super Series.

There appeared to be problems after the third round, when Burnett could be heard telling coach Adam Booth: "I can't move it".

Visibly distressed from the moment he had to take a knee in the centre of the ring, Burnett managed to survive the remainder of the round. "That's pretty much it".

A victory by the Talibon, Bohol native will not only hand him the WBA title but also a chance to challenge world bantamweight champions from WBO, IBF, WBA and WBO as part of the World Boxing Super Series. I told him he's a great fighter. But when [trainer] Kenny [Adams] and I started to connect, that's when I really started to box really well and started to use my speed.

Donaire (39-5, 25 KOs) will meet Zolani Tete (28-3, 21 KOs), the defending WBO bantamweight titleholder.

Burnett knows that, of course, saying that Donaire is going to be his toughest test. "He's a lengthy guy, a southpaw, and we're very cordial when we see each other".

Despite losing out to George Groves in last year's super-middleweight semi-final, Chris Eubank jr remained in the frame for a possible final meeting with Callum Smith as a result of the shoulder injury Groves sustained late on that last four fight. Taylor will fight Ivan Baranchyk (19-0, 12 KOs) in the semifinals.
