Donaire vs Vetyeka fight video online: Watch Nonito Donaire vs Simpiwe Vetyeka fight video highlights here

Watch Donaire vs. Vetyeka fight video highlights right here, as Bloody Elbow presents fight video from Nonito Donaire vs. Simpiwe Vetyeka in Macau, China.

This weekend, HBO Boxing presented an international split-site double-header. Before the featured fight and the Carl Froch vs. George Groves rematch from Wembley Stadium, HBO presented a tape delay broadcast of the latest from Nonito Donaire. The Filipino Flash took on Simpiwe Vetyeka at The Venetian in Macau, China.

Donaire walked into this fight badly needing a win, and while he may have technically walked out with that win, it was not a performance that is going to turn around the increasingly negative feelings towards Donaire.

Donaire won the fight via 4th round technical decision, however it was an ending that satisfied no one. Donaire suffered a cut in round 1, though it was never clear if the referee ruled that cut as the result of a headbutt (and therefore an unintentional foul), or the result of a legal blow, in which case a cut stoppage would be ruled a TKO win for Simpiwe. Ultimately, the fight was indeed stopped due to the cut, it was decided to go to the judges, and Donaire took the win.

The ending will surely bring up the all too common cries of corruption and incompetence in boxing, and this time, they will be well deserved.

Fight video highlights, courtesy of ESPN, are available right here at Bloody Elbow.
