The above Tweet was posted on November 9, right after Nonito Donaire finally found his counter punch and was able to successfully stop Vic Darchinyan. At the point of stoppage, Donaire was losing the fight, and was losing it in a very clear cut fashion.

Maybe Donaire aged at an incredible pace, or maybe his heart is no longer intertwined with the sport of boxing. It is also entirely possible, that Nonito was never the fighter that the media as well as the boxing fan base had proclaimed him to be. While it might be premature to guess how Donaire will look in his next fight, based on his last two, the young champion is already in decline for whatever reasons, external or self inflicted.

Rigondeaux offering Donaire a rematch in March of 2014 is a bit comical right now, at least from the standpoint of boxing fans hoping for more competitive matches. Looking the way Doanire did against his second fight with Darchinyan, Guillermo will simply retire The Filipino Flash without much effort while earning a very healthy paycheck.

Will Donaire take this opportunity to face his former victor in Miami? Yes, he probably will, signing himself up for a loss that most boxing fans can already see coming.
