    Looked great from the highlights, I just hate TOP RANK. They are disrespecting the average boxing fan and/or have a very limited understanding of the internet

    Very exciting fight, plenty of action from the middle part up. The efforts placed by both boxers were commendable. No doubts that Nonito is technically a better boxer than the Mexican however was Cesar, a real warrior with a lot of heart, who made this fight so interesting and deserving the 4 starts qualification. Cesar raised the level of this fight because he was implacable with Nonito and himself also.
    In my opinion Nonito’s career is almost over. He isn’t anymore the boxer he was when fought as an undefeated boxer because presently looks like that his confidence is still low. I guess he missed the train and hasn’t no more time enough for recovering.
    I was pleasantly surprised to heard than Cesar has a master in law. He should be more captious when boxing to protect himself and his real future as a lawyer. As a boxer, he should improve his defensive techniques because he received several hard punches from Nonito.
    The video quality was quite bad.

      I too question the future of Donaire. Maybe he didn’t train well, therefore losing steam in the second part of the fight?

  • Mattsnow

    I had it 114-112 Donaire, I think the scorecards are too wide. Anyway, first part of the fight was a tad boring, apart from the 2 knockdowns in the 4th. Nice flooring of the gas pedal by Juarez in the second part, Donaire looked totally drained. Maybe it’s because of that ankle he twisted. Anyway, nice fight even though the action was not equal. 3 stars

      Mat agree with your score. Cards were too much in favor of Nonito. But Juarez being a lawyer will sue the judges JaJaJa

    • Olivier Veillette

      Awesome fight! I had it 115-112 for Nonito.
      I thought the first knockdown in the 4th was just a slip by Juarez, but the same goes for Donaire in the 10th (after watching the replay). You guys are right in questionning Donaire’s future, but as long as he brings such entertainment into the ring, I’m sure people will pay to see him fight.
      About the ankle twist, you might be right also Matt, but it could also be that Donaire was already tired at that point. Fatigue can surely make your legs feel heavier and affect your balance. In fact, he probably slipped on his own sweat in that corner!
