    Who would have won this one had they fought back in the day?

    Both at their best, of course.

    You'd have to think that Donaire would stop Hasegawa at some point, probably while down on points after a bright start from the latter. Hasegawa was a prodigious raw talent but a bit too reckless, defensively naive and open after punching to last the rounds against a huge-hitting counter puncher like Donaire. Montiel stopped this from happening with some good sneaky punching after Hasegawa had really been on top against him. If Hasegawa had had a good chin it might be different, because his footwork, speed and combination punching were all top drawer and he could slip and counter quite well when he was focused. A shame really, he's a fighter I was quite fond of.

    He was a beast. Glad he went out on top.
