Nonito Donaire was busier as expected. A single Donaire left hook deposited Fernando Montiel on the canvas, legs twitching. Montiel somehow beat the count and was hit with two more power shots before the end came. A star is born. Who wouldn’t want to see Donaire-Juan Manuel Lopez or Donaire-Gamboa?
