MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Nonito Donner challenged Father Time with a vintage performance, beating Nordin Opali to win the WBC Championship Sunday (Manila time) in Carson, California.
The 38-year-old Donner became the oldest bantamotte champion in boxing history and the French-Moroccan suffered his first loss.
Donner beat Obali three times – with the final knockout arriving in the fourth round – prompting the referee to stop the fight as the “Filipino Flash” dominated from start to finish.
