While everyone was focusing more on the hyped fight between Jose Also and Connor McGregor for the UFC featherweight championship, yours truly on the other hand spotted a short clip about a boxing match happened yesterday (of Friday night in Latin America).
The Filipino Flash Nonito Donaire reclaimed gold in such a dramatic fashion after defeating Cesar Juarez for the vacant WBO Super Bantamweight Championship. Yes, dramatic because both boxers were actually good in trading blows despite several slips and knockdowns along the way.
What a fight between Nonito Donaire and Cesar Juarez. Possible Fight of the Year candidate? Nonito Donaire wins a unanimous decision 116-110 twice and 117-109. Donaire wins the vacant WBO super bantamweight title #SupremeBoxing

Say, can this brawl be considered the boxing match of the year? There’s a chance. Huge chance, actually. Forget the unanimous scorecards or other technicalities and terminologies. Sports science may play a huge factor here, but certainly statistics wasn’t even enough to describe the Donaire-Juarez scuffle.
Better than those aforementioned by Bleacher Report, or even what FOX Sports offered before (Cotto-Alvarez), and even the most-hyped-but-failed-to-deliver Pacquiao-vs.-Mayweather affair.
Well, just put this one on the list of top nominees, please?
