Donaire back with stoppage over Quigg opponent


By @Livefight

Nonito Donaire Jr had his first fight back since his KO defeat to Nicholas Walters 2nd round TKO over Brazilian William Prado at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines.

Donaire backed-up Prado to the ropes, wobbling him before unleashing a barrage of left hooks before the referee stepped in and halted proceedings.

If the name 'Prado' rings a bell, its because Britian's unbeaten super bantamweight Scott Quigg had him out of there in three rounds back in 2013.

Boxing fans have called for Quigg vs Donaire if the fight with Belfast's Carl Frampton cannot be made.

Quigg's promoter Eddie Hearn met with Team Frampton last week, but the silence since their meeting is deafening.

4-weight champion Donaire improves to 34-2 (22ko) whilst Prado slips to 22-5 and his second career stoppage loss.
