CONTROVERSY after knockdown was counted after bell in round 3
"FATHER TIME TAKE A BACK SEAT!" was the commentators cry as the 38 year old Nonito Donaire provided another memorable night, knocking out Nordine Oubaali to claim the WBC Bantamweight title.
In doing so, Donaire becomes a three time world champion at the weight, but also BREAKS HIS OWN RECORD to become the oldest bantamweight champion in history.

There was controversy, Donaire knocked Oubaali down after the bell at the end of the third, though marginally and in the middle of an exchange.
The round after, Donaire made history.
Wow, that second Donaire knockdown in Round 3 WAY after the bell. And that was a brutal shot landed on Oubaali. Donaire already dropped him once in the round before that #OubaaliDonaire— Mike Coppinger (@MikeCoppinger) May 30, 2021
