AFTERMATH: Nonito Donaire-Jeffrey Mathebula, Kell Brook-Carson Jones, Wladimir Klitschko-Tony Thompson

1
Still, when facing a man with perhaps the most explosive counter left hook in boxing, you tend to pay for the mistakes you do make. The "Marvelous Mongoose" attempted to time Donaire’s cobra-like reflexes with a right hand in the fourth round, which only prompted Donaire, 29-1, with 18 KOs, to launch his left as if it was sprung from the jaws of a bear trap. The South African got put on the seat of his trunks, but he showed his resolve by getting up on shaky legs, making it to this corner, and bouncing back admirably throughout the next round. But the knockdown represented the difference between the two fighters: Donaire had starch on his punches, and Mathebula didn't. From The Cruelest Sport
