    I love how people always bring up the whole size advantage thing of Donaire, as if he's the only fighter to have done that.

    Yes let's forget about Thomas Hearns, Gerald McClellan, Ricardo Lopez, Oscar de la Hoya, Arturo Gatti, Diego Coralles, Antonio Margarito, Paul Williams, Adrien Broner, and so many other fighters that have had that "size advantage" before.
    But of course you guys won't admit that.

    Ive alwasy found that if a guy is unpopular, cuts weight and he wins, hes a "weight cheat"

    But if a guy is unpopular and he beats a guy who cuts weight, then the other guy was "weight drained"

    agreed, walters proved to be too big, too strong and too powerful.
    I admit, I was wrong. I picker donair to win, I thought he would had caught him with more left hooks like the one at the end of round 2.

    he catches him 30 seconds earlier and we talking how great donair was right now. after that nasty upper cut in round 3 donair was done. he got up but was finished in that fight

    I became a bigger fan of Donaire from his remarks after the fight. Very classy man. Props to Walters also, he was very gracious. Fighters like those make me proud to be a fan of the sport.

    I prefer Nonito to Broner... I think Nonito's more talented...

    The only advantage the size gave Walters was power and punch resistance, and he wasn't that much bigger. The size wasn't what caused Walters to outbox him. Nonito allowed Walters to back him up and set the pace, that jab kept Nonito at bay. Since Nonito is slightly smaller and fights shorter, he'd need to weave his way inside and keep working the body. Get in, get out. But it's easier said than done. Credit to Walters, can't take nothing away from him, he did his thing.

    Not sure where you have been, but he avoided Mares, Agbeko, Perez, and Moreno at 118. His opposition at 118 wasn't better than those guys were. At 122 he still did not fight Mares, Moreno, or Agbeko. He continued fighting retirees, stiffs, and blown up smaller men. He tried to avoid Rigondeaux for a while also. At 126, at least he stepped up to the plate. Outside of Rigondeaux. Vetyeka, and Walters are probably his best opponents, along with Darchinyan from the first fight.

    Exactly. As I said, Donaire was beating on guys who he weighed more than five pounds heavier than, and was more than one inch taller then most of his career. Now he faces a guy a tad bit taller, and 5 pounds heavier in the ring, who actually had a little skill, not that primitive type of guy like Vazquez Jr. or Mathebula, but a guy with decent talent, and he got worn down, and stopped. He is probably lucky the Vetyeka fight was stopped when it was also, because the trend is that Donaire starts to get beat up as the fights go on.
