Recently crowned WBO super bantamweight world champion Nonito Donaire produced an impressive performance on Saturday, February 4 against Wilfredo Vazquez Jr at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, proving that, despite traversing through the weight classes he is still able to retain one of his greatest pugilistic assets – his speed.

Donaire did score a flash droppage in round nine courtesy of an uppercut/left hook combination but his overall knock-out power may have been inhibited by a left hand that was shredded around the knuckles.

    That was caused by that left hook to the body hitting Wilfredo Vasquez Jr.’s right elbow in the second round. Ouch! No wonder Nonito Jr. didn’t throw much left hook to the body…his left hand was already injured!
