MACAO - Nonito Donaire became the new world featherweight champion Saturday after defeating South Africa's Simpiwe Vetyeka in a fight that saw the Filipino boxing star take victory after an anti-climactic technical decision. The bout was stopped after four rounds due to an "accidental headbutt" which left 31-year-old Donaire's left eye swollen and cut. According to the rules of the World Boxing Association, if such an incident happens after four rounds, the match goes to the scorecards. A trio of judges scored 49-46 for Donaire. The fight had started off slow, but Donaire floored his opponent in the second round with a right hook. Another left hook connected in the fourth round, knocking Vetyeka down again and sending the crowd wild. Donaire admitted he was disappointed with how the fight ended.–AFP
