Headbutt! Nonito Donaire vs Simpiwe Vetyeka full fight video highlights

It wasn't the finish anyone expected and/or wanted, but Nonito Donaire is a champion again after defeating Simpiwe Vetyeka via technical decision earlier today (Sat., May 31, 2014) at The Venetian in Macau, China, to claim WBA's Featherweight title. "Filipino Flash" was gashed early because of a inadvertent headbutt, which didn't stop him from flooring the South African fight several rounds later with a blistering overhand left hand. Vetyeka was able to recover, while Donaire's eye only got worse, forcing a premature end to the match in the eighth round that led to a technical decision win for the Filipino (39-36 x3).
