‘Sorry’ Donaire loses
winning streak

NEW YORK – Cuba's Guillermo Rigondeaux beat Nonito Donaire by a unanimous decision yesterday in his WBA junior featherweight world title and handed the “Filipino Flash” his first loss in 12 years.

Two-time Olympic gold medal winner Rigondeaux recovered from an earlier knockdown to win the 12-round bout at Radio City Music Hall on all three judges' scorecards, 114-113, 115-112 and 116-111.

The 32-year-old Rigondeaux remained undefeated as a pro, improving to 12-0 with eight knockouts. He also took Donaire's WBO version of the belt.
