THE career of Nonito Donaire, not long ago one of the most glittering in boxing, is in tatters after he lost his WBA featherweight title to Nicholas Walters in six rounds. The showdown, at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, California, was wild and entertaining but Donaire was ultimately outgunned.

Donaire enjoyed success in the second round, when he hurt his rival with the kind of left hooks that used to knock out smaller men as he collected titles in lower divisions.
