Bob & Nonito: What happens in Macau stays in Macau

Everyone loves Nonito Donaire.  Read Donald McRae’s Changing Man interview and see how he comes across – what’s not to like, right?  He is one of boxing’s good guys.  He is also a great fighter. During his 12 year unbeaten stretch he picked up belts in the fly, super fly, bantam and super bantamweight divisions.  Plus he entertains.  In 2007 and 2011, Ring Magazine awarded him Knockout of the Year gongs and he was their 2012 Fighter of the Year.  Fighters who are hugely likeable (and thus marketable) outside the ring and thrillingly devastating inside it are a promoter’s dream.  In the Filipino Flash’s case, he is Bob Arum’s and Top Rank’s dream.

The week in boxing – 2 June 2014: Nonito Donaire vs Simpiwe Vetyeka

First things first.  Nobody is a bigger admirer of Nonito Donaire than this writer.  I believe that he has been one of, if not the, most exciting fighter(s) in the world since 2007, when he burst onto the scene by knocking out Vic Darchinyan, previously thought to be virtually indestructible.  Time after time Donaire has thrilled the boxing public with his sensational punching power, e.g. leaving a high quality opponent like Volodymyr Sydorenko looking as though he had been hit around the face with a hammer.  Not only that, but he is one of the few fighters who can still compel me to get to my feet, approach the television screen with mouth and eyes similarly agape, helpless with excitement and urging him on.  Nonito’s complicity with VADA testing has also been remarkably creditable in a sport where many of the top protagonists are still suspected of taking PEDs.

Now that I have cleared up my views on Nonito, I still have no hesitation in stating that his opponent on Saturday in Macao, Simpiwe Vetyeka, was blatantly cheated out of his WBA featherweight belt.  For those who did not see the fight, Nonito was cut over his left eye at the end of the first round.  It was, and remained, unclear throughout the remainder of the contest exactly what had caused the cut.  To be fair to the officials on site, even after several viewings of slow motion television replays, nothing definitive could be observed.  In the meantime, it was clear that the fight was going to be highly competitive, with the South African outjabbing Donaire in the first two rounds to get off to an early lead, during which time Donaire had undergone two corner inspections of his cut by the doctor.
