Donaire looks like he has the potential to be a very good/borderline great fighter.

Khaokor has the style to give Donaire trouble and a tough fight.
He can fight off the back foot, throws straight punches, he can be busy and he has (Espinosa fix aside) a sturdy chin.

Donaire doesn't like to lead and he tends to neglect his jab and combinations waiting for the perfect counter.

But I just don't think Khaokor simply was good enough to completely neutralize Donaire's superior speed and dangerous punching power.

You need to have better defense and a better jab to keep Donaire from hitting you with his power shots on a regular basis.
Fighting with a bit more patient/not taking a lot of chances approach wouldn't hurt either.

Donaire wins this one, in my opinion.
By decision.
