Former world flyweight and bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire was making his debut in the super-bantamweight division when he met Wifredo Vasquez Jr for the vacant WBO world Super-bantamweight title at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Vasquez Jr had held this title before, winning the vacant title in February 2010 against another Filipino fighter in Marvin Sonsona and making two successful defences before losing the title to Mexican Jorge Arce.

The early rounds were back and forth with Donaire taking the first four and then Vasquez Jr staging a mini-comeback to even things up, but when Donaire dropped Vasquez Jr with a right hand, left uppercut, and a finishing left hook in the 9th round, the Filipino veteran pulled away for a comfortable points victory.

Scores: Dr Ruben M Garcia 112-115 | Levi Martinez 117-110 | Don Trella 117-110.
