The present form of Nonito Donaire seems to have quite a resemblance with his looks in the distant past. Nonito Donaire, the Filipino-American fighter of 38 years of age won his 1st title in 2007 with a powerful crushing left hook. In the 4th round, he used a similar punch to knock out amazing fighter Nordine Oubaali to become the 118-pound fighter and title holder for a record 3rd time in California’s Carson on Saturday.
Nonito Donaire knocked out the unbeaten Frenchman twice in the 3rd round and also in the next one by only using his left hook, which is the signature punch of the fighter. It is one of the strongest punches in the world. Nonito Donaire won 9 world titles while fighting in a total of 3 divisions. This performance by the fighter is capable of clinching a position for him in the International Fame Hall of Boxing. While Oubaali sat confused and dazed-looking at the canvas, the fight was stopped by Jack Reiss, referee of the night.
Donaire constantly kept shouting about how he was back in the fight. He also added that the king of the ring has finally returned. It appeared as if the king was back in the previous fight, amazing Naoya Inoue inside the ring. He pushed Naoya to the fighter’s limits in 2019 November.
Nonito Donaire Appeared Calm In The Match
In That match, Donaire proved how he has the capability of competing with almost anyone. Oubaali (12 KOs, 17-1) approached the fight being an undefeated fighter and a 2-time Olympian. However, Oubaali never put up with a fidget like Donaire, who appeared to be too good, too strong, and too big for him. While Oubaali was jabbing and bouncing, Donaire (27 KOs, 41-6) fought patiently. He waited for the right opportunities to strike back!
