Ryan Burnett lost his World Boxing Super Series bantamweight quarter-final against Filipino-American Nonito Donaire after failing to come out of his corner for the fifth round.

Nonito Donaire Jr. (right) will attempt to snatch the WBA world bantamweight belt from titleholder Ryan Burnett of Northern Ireland.

Burnett lost his unbeaten record in freakish fashion at The SSE Hydro, damaging his back when he missed with a right hand in the fourth round.

While it might have been a bittersweet victory for the 35-year-old "Filipino Flash", it's one that he will still savor as he added to his vast collection of world titles ranging from flyweight to junior featherweight.

"That's something I told him". "This tournament gives me an opportunity to showcase my capabilities against the best in this division". "That's pretty much it".

The driver of the truck, who sustained minor injuries, told police the vehicle had a brake failure as he was travelling downhill. The Gansu provincial authorities demanded an examination of unsafe sections of expressways across the province.

Taylor, 27, ousted 25-year-old Ryan Martin in the quarter-final of the World Boxing Super Series at the SSE Hydro, stopping the previously undefeated American talent inside seven rounds, exclusively live on iFL TV in the United Kingdom and on DAZN in the States.

"Ultimately, I felt really good and learned a lot and saw a lot of what I'm capable of in the division".

Tete defeated Russian Mikhail Aloyan in their quarterfinals last month.

"I see him getting rid of Donaire in the middle to late rounds", he said. It is going to be an exciting fight.

Josh "The Tartan Tornado" Taylor (13-0, 11 KOs) versus Ryan "Blue Chip" Martin (22-0, 12 KOs) is a battle between two undefeated super lightweights, with the victor advancing closer to the coveted Ali Trophy. Taylor will face Ivan Baranchyk (19-0, 12 KO's) in the semifinals.
