Donaire’s Legendary Left Hook


By Ponciano Melo – It is definite that Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire is a future boxing hall of Fame. Given his accolades throughout his still strong going career, he is much qualified after he decided to retire, maybe sooner or later.

But if there’s one thing unique about him inside the ring, what is it?

How did he become a four-division world champion?

If I could pick one, I think most of you will agree that it is his great left hook.

Please take note, Donaire is not a southpaw, but his left hook is so lethal.

The latest victim was Nordine Oubaali, the former WBC Bantamweight Champion. Donaire unleashed wrath against him by landing his signature punch that led to a fourth-round knockout and becoming the oldest bantamweight champion in boxing history at 38. He also dealt with Oubaali’s first professional defeat.

His left hook has a lot of history, including his insane knockout on Vic Darchinyan, left hook that injured Naoya Inoue,

On February 12, 2011, he flat-out destroyed Fernando Montiel with none other than his left hook.
