Josh Taylor eases past Ryan Martin with seventh round TKO

Josh Taylor eases past Ryan Martin with seventh round TKO

The duel beginning was for Burnett, which was significantly higher than that of Donaire in speed, but in the middle of the fourth Burnett threw a right hook, which apparently led to a back injury, that Ryan injured on the face, got down on one knee, holding the right glove for the back.

Ireland's Ryan Burnett has lost hold of his WBA world-bantamweight belt in a World Boxing Super Series quarter-final clash against the vastly experienced Nonito Donaire.

There appeared to be problems after the third round, when Burnett could be heard telling coach Adam Booth: "I can't move it".

As promised, Donaire made weight on his first try, tipping the scales at 117.7 pounds on Friday, slightly lighter than Burnett's 117.8, and heading to his 17th world title appearance.

The 26-year-old Burnett wasn't able to stand from his stool before the fifth round started, giving Donaire two titles and the rights to fight African World Boxing Organization (WBO) world bantamweight champion Zolani Tete (28-3-0,21KOs) in the World Boxing Super Series' semifinal round in the bantamweight division next year.

So far Rajapaksa has 100 MPs on his side while Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has 103 MPs in the 225-member assembly. Wickremesinghe and his party have maintained that the move was illegal as they still held a majority in the House.

"My goal is to become the first Filipino to unify a world championship", Donaire told a news conference last Wednesday.

"He (Burnett) was fast, strong and caught me with some good punches", he added.

"I am close to have everything I ever wanted in Life". It is going to be an exciting fight. That's why I have this mad hunger to smash through every single object in front of me.

Burnett is undefeated in 19 fights, with nine knockouts, while 35-year-old Donaire boasts 24 knockouts in 38 wins, against five losses.

Fact is, a 950 United Kingdom pounds bet on Burnett wins just 100 United Kingdom pounds while a 100-pound bet on Donaire gets 575 pounds in return.
