Super bantamweight Jessie Magdaleno, 24-0-(17), scored a best win of his unbeaten career Saturday night when he out-pointed Nonito Donaire, 37-4-(24), Saturday to claim the WBO super bantamweight title at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.


In a close fight Donaire pressured Magdaleno throughout but the challenger more than held his own and wobbled Donaire in in the ninth round to secure the title by scores of 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110.
