Photo: Donaire Celebrates, The Left Hand is Badly Injured

By Ryan Burton

San Antonio, Texas - BoxingScene.com caught up with Nonito Donaire Jr. as he celebrated his victory over Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. Donaire broke his hand as he picked up the WBO super bantamweight title.

After the fight was over Donaire's hand wraps on his left hand were soaked with blood. 

"I broke my hand somewhere between the second and fourth round," Donaire would tell BoxingScene.

The Filipino Flash was sporting a cast on his hand after the fight and said that he won't know the extent of his injury until Monday.

"It hurts to close my hand. I should know to what extent I injured it on Monday," said Donaire.

nonito imo is good but top 5 p4p i dont agree. wv2 no amatuer experience slower smaller greener i thought nonito would destroy him. did wv2 get better since arce? maybe but hes not very technical and nonitos technical skills…

Nonito's showboating is more of a sign of frustruation than it is being a douche. He just doesn't really know how to react when he's not getting through. As much as I'd like to see Rigo vs Donaire, it's just…
