Nonito Donaire Right Hand Stops Settoul In 2
Since returning to the super bantamweight division, Nonito Donaire has really looked on the money again. Last night was further testament to this.
Nonito Donaire recorded his second consecutive 2nd round TKO victory last night, since losing to Nicholas Walters last year.

Nonito made quick work of Anthony, straight away establishing his dominance, dropping Settoul twice in the very first round. Although Settoul managed to survive the end of the round, the writing was on the wall.
After a perfectly timed right hand (below) from Donaire that sent Settoul to the seat of his pants again in the 2nd round, his corner had seen enough by then.
