Nonito Donaire Jr. became a world champion again after he scored a freaky technical knockout win over Ireland's Ryan Burnett in the World Boxing Super Series Saturday night in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

Nonito Donaire Jr.is once again a world champion.

A freak injury handed Ryan Burnett the first loss of his professional career and cost him his WBA Bantamweight title as his suffered a fourth round TKO against Nonito Donaire.

Somehow, the 26-year-old managed to see the round out but once the adrenaline wore off, the pain became too much for Burnett in his corner and he failed to make it off his stool for the fifth.

Donaire sent his opponent a classy message after the bout, wishing Burnett a speedy recovery.

Fact is, a 950 United Kingdom pounds bet on Burnett wins just 100 United Kingdom pounds while a 100-pound bet on Donaire gets 575 pounds in return.

Josh Taylor could be back in Glasgow sooner rather than later.

"I think I'm back to being the devastating guy, I've always been devastating even at 126, they fear my power".

Burnett knows that, of course, saying that Donaire is going to be his toughest test.

Donaire (39-5, 25 KO's), 35, who was competing at 118 pounds for the first time since 2011, will meet Zolani Tete (28-3, 21 KO's), the WBO bantamweight titleholder in the WBSS semifinals.

Other results saw Inoue stop Jua Carlos Parayano on October 7 and Tete win by decision over Mikhail Aloyan on October 17.

The victor between Burnett and Donaire takes on Tete in the semifinals.
