A victory by the Talibon, Bohol native will not only hand him the WBA title but also a chance to challenge world bantamweight champions from WBO, IBF, WBA and WBO as part of the World Boxing Super Series.

IT WAS a successful return for five-division world champion Nonito "Filipino Flash" Donaire Jr. after scoring a freakish fourth-round victory to dethrone British World Boxing Association (WBA) super world bantamweight champion Ryan Burnett and win the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) Diamond bantamweight title in the World Boxing Super Series quarterfinals in Glasgow, Scotland, yesterday.

"I have watched Burnett a few times and he is a very accomplished fighter", said McAuley. Not sustained during a clash with Donaire, it would appear that an errant punch thrown by Ryan Burnett resulted in a freak back injury.

"First off, I want to acknowledge and thank God and my archangels for everything they put before me tonight", tweeted Donaire who slid back to 118 pounds where he scored many of his most explosive conquests. The Associated Press reported that Burnett needed oxygen after being carried out of the ring with an apparent hip injury.


Josh Taylor could be back in Glasgow sooner rather than later.

Mr. Burnett was eventually able to finish the round but could not make a go after it, forcing him to surrender his belt. "I came into this fight as the bigger guy and my coaches snapped me out of it and told me to box".

With the win, Donaire improves to 39-5 with 25 wins via KO. Tete outpointed Mikhail Aloyan in Russian Federation last month in a WBSS quarterfinal.

Josh "The Tartan Tornado" Taylor (13-0, 11 KOs) versus Ryan "Blue Chip" Martin (22-0, 12 KOs) is a battle between two undefeated super lightweights, with the victor advancing closer to the coveted Ali Trophy. Taylor (14-0, 12 KOs) dominated Martin (22-1, 12 KOs) over seven one-sided rounds.
