2014-05-31 : Simpiwe Vetyeka 125½ lbs lost to Nonito Donaire 126 lbs by TD at 0:01 in round 5 of 12

  • Fought for World Boxing Association Super World Featherweight title in out-of-the-way venue of Venetian Resort in Macao, China.
  • Accidental head butt in round one causes a head cut on Boxrec # 1 Donaire which forces the bout to the scorecards in round four.
  • Nonito Donaire's win sets up a WBA unification bout with Nicholas Walters, and a title rematch of his lone loss to Guillermo Rigondeaux.
  • Vetyeka down in round four. Donaire clearly ahead on the scorecards because of this, and wins the bout by technical decision therefore.
  • The scores were announced as 49-46 Donaire for all judges despite neither boxer actually fighting a fifth round.
