[LIVE BLOG] Nonito Donaire vs Toshiaki Nishioka

Battle for IBF and WBO Super Bantamweight championship and vacant WBC Diamond Super Bantamweight

  • From ESPN's Dan Rafael: This is not a good fight so far but made worse for the fans because of how great the other one was. #boxing
  • It's looking like Pacquiao-Clottey in there. Nishioka is putting the crowd to sleep. Round to Donaire. 40-36.. #DonaireNishioka
  • Naruto fans? Donaire is looking like the Yellow Flash.
  • Round 5: Donaire might look for the knockout if this continues. Good left to the body for Nishioka, but that's all he has done for 5 rounds. #DonaireNishioka
  • Crowd getting restless. Donaire looking frustrated. Nishioka obviously fighting scared. #DonaireNishioka
  • It's hardly a battle of speed. Donaire is much, much faster. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nishioka warned for a low blow. Everytime Donaire goes on the offensive, Nishioka keeps covering up like a turtle. #DonaireNishioka
  • Round to Donaire. 50-45. Donaire's won every round so far. #DonaireNishioka
  • Round 6: Nishioka's corner should tell him to get into the fight, he's totally out of it.
  • Nishioki doesn't look like he's in it to win it. Looks like he just wants to collect one last huge paycheck before calling it a career. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nishioka opening up a little now, must've heard the fans yelling at him. #DonaireNishioka
  • Woooooow!!! BOOM! Huge uppercut by Donaire sends Nishioka to the canvas!
  • Now we got a fight!!!! Great round!!!! Nishioka woke up on that one! So did the crowd!! Another huge left by Nonito!!!! #DonaireNishioka
  • Round to Donaire plus the knockdown. 60-53
  • Replay shows two uppercuts land for Donaire. That was an awesome round. #DonaireNishioka
  • Round 7: Nishioka with that right hand up so high, really weary of that Donaire left hook.
  • Donaire dancing around. Doesn't respect Nishioka's power at all. Nishioka is at the very least, fighting back now. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nonito got thumbed in the eye there. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nishioka's poor first half has him fighting out of a huge deficit. He needs a knockout to win. #DonaireNishioka
  • Round to Donaire. Nishioka still has every single round in the books. 70-62. Total domination.
  • Round 8: Nonito Donaire is comfortably ahead on the scorecards at this point. Donaire is stronger, faster and more aggressive. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nishioka starting to land more, but still very cautious, yet trying to close the gap and get on the inside. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nishioka realizes he can't beat Donaire from the outside, the Filipino Flash is just too fast. #DonaireNishioka
  • Donaire's footwork is a masterpiece! Good combination by Donaire staggers Nishioka. Both fighters landing shots now. #DonaireNishioka
  • Round still to Donaire. 80-71. #DonaireNishioka
  • Donaire just took quick for Nishioka to handle. He
  • Round 9: Donaire spins and slips, that's dangerous. He could twist an ankle or something. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nishioka's biggest accomplishment is protecting himself from Donaire's left hook, but aside from that, nada. Nothing. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nishioka on the offensive but Donaire lands a straight right hand!!!! Boom!!!!! It's over!!!! Nishioka gets knocked out!!! #DonaireNishioka
  • Donaire finally gets a knockout. Wooooow. Donaire is a monster!!! #DonaireNishioka
  • Donaire camped on the ropes and baited Nishioka in, who obliged. Donaire set him up with a flash counter right straight from the corner. Knocks Nishioka down in a daze. #DonaireNishioka
  • After watching the replay, the stoppage looks a little premature. Nishioka was still defending well. But I don't think had the fight continued anything would have changed much. #DonaireNishioka
  • Nishioka was just completely out of it from the first round onwards. He had no chance at all. #DonaireNishioka
  • Congratulations to the winner, Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire! Winner by 9th round TKO. Still the WBO Super Bantamweight Champion. #DonaireNishioka
