Filipino Flash Nonito Donaire lost his WBO Super Bantamweight title against WBA Super Bantamweight belt holder, Guillermo Rigondeaux of Cuba.
So what made Rigondeaux won?
Rigondeaux has a very good defensive techniques and he has a very good footwork. Donaire seems to be overconfident that he will win this game.
From the beginning of the game until the round 7 the match was boring. Round 10 was the most exciting among all. Donaire knocked down Rigondeaux 2 times but he was able to recover fast.
Guillermo Rigondeaux scored a lot of punches more than his opponent Donaire. A lot of speculators were guessing that it might be a loss for Donaire since he is not hitting any solid punches to Rigondeaux.
Nonito Donaire lost with the scorecards 114-113, 115-112 and 116-111.
What is the lesson in this game?
It is not about knocking down your opponent but it's the scorecard that matters. There are statements all over social networking sites that Donaire was cheated the way Manny Pacquiao did experience before but the judge's decision is final and irrevocable.
Congratulations Guillermo Rigondeaux for your 12-0 record win and to Nonito Donaire, it was a very good fight but better luck next time.
