Ryan Burnett: Dave ‘Boy’ McAuley gives backing to Belfast ‘star’

Ryan Burnett: Dave ‘Boy’ McAuley gives backing to Belfast ‘star’

Should Donaire score a win, he will join Manny Pacquiao, Jerwin Ancajas and Vic Saludar the country's reigning world champions.

Now with the win, Donaire advances to the World Boxing Super Series semifinals where he will have a shot at reclaiming the WBO title when he faces Zolani Tete.

In the fourth round, however, Burnett hit the canvas due to a fight-ending injury to what appears to be the lower right-side of his back.

NONITO "The Filipino Flash" Donaire captured the World Boxing Association "super" world bantamweight title after stopping erstwhile champion Ryan Burnett of Great Britain in the fifth round of their World Boxing Super Series clash early Sunday morning (Manila time) in Glasgow, Scotland.

It was not the way that Donaire would have wanted to win and ever the sportsman, he made a point of checking on Burnett immediately after the referee waved the bout off.

"Next, I would like to send prayers of healing to Ryan Burnett and thank him for sharing the ring with me".

He will now be forced to wait until the conclusion of the tournament to attempt to get back to world champion status in the bantamweight class. Burnett will not have another world title fight until late in 2019.

Donaire was on the front foot in the third, but Burnett continued to come forward in a contest which was bubbling up nicely until being so cruelly cut short.

"I think I'm back to being the devastating guy, I've always been devastating even at 126, they fear my power".

Burnett started out well, landing several combinations to Donaire.

Tete defeated Russian Mikhail Aloyan in their quarterfinals last month.
