Congratulations to the big hearted Inoue he deserved to win. Great fight and it could be the fight of the year. But 2 of the scorecards were aweful 117-109 and 116- 111. I think it should be close like 115-112 or 114-113 what do you think?

Bad scoring,split decision is okay, if no knockdown it could go other way

This was a good fight and much closer than indicated on 2 of the judges' score cards but due the knockdown, that cemented Inoue's win. Donaire put up a hell of a fight against the "Monster" who has annihilated everybody he faced. He almost knocked Donaire out but Donaire had the heart of a lion and got up from a vicious body shot and finished on his feet to the end. Although Donaire lost, he showed the heart of a champion. At his old age he was not able to pull the trigger especially after getting Inoue hurt. He's not as fast as he was when he was younger. If an old and aging Donaire was able to put up this good of a fight, I think the Donaire of 2011 that knocked out Fernando Montiel could have defeated Inoue at 26 years old. Donaire looked slower in this fight compared to 2011 when he was only 28 years old, who's turning 37 Saturday next week. As much as I enjoyed watching Donaire through the years especially during his prime years, I think it's time for him to retire. He's pretty much guaranteed a spot into the Boxing Hall of Fame for what he's accomplished especially in the lighter weights.

The Fight reminded me somewhat of the Pacquiao Thurman Fight....

Old Lion vs Young Undefeated Champ.

Except it was Manny that Landed the late Telling Body Shot that sealed the Deal taking Thurman's Belt

Whereas Inoue landed the late Telling Body Shot that Sealed his Deal allowing him to keep his belt

Which Demonstrates how truly Special Manny is, especially considering that Manny was 40 and Donaire younger at a week shy of 37

The most telling thing for me is how stationary of a Target Nonito was and never used ANY head Feints
