I think we are going to see the Donaire from the Montiel fight a few years ago. I am expecting him to shine and score a spectacular knockout with the left hook. Vetyeka is a good fighter but has a tendency to pull straight back with his hands down and chin straight up. That's a recipe for disaster against Donaire.

Looking forward to this. It's been a good day of boxing so far.. It's only going to get better. Donaire stoppage in the late rounds, I think he'll wear down his opponent with his accuracy and power. Haven't seen Vetyeka fight, but if he pulls out straight back as Oubobcat said then I'm sure we'll see a KO.
