    NONITO Donaire beat up a totally outclassed Anthony Settoul of France on the way to a technical knockout in the second round of their non-title fight on Saturday night at the Cotai Arena in Macau.

    The former four-time world champion kept tagging Settoul from the get-go and never let up, decking the Frenchman twice in the first round and again in the second before his opponent's corner stopped the fight.

    Settoul (20-4) managed to beat the count both times in the first round but was clearly down and out after getting hit with a cracking right straight by Donaire when his corner threw in the towel.

    The end came at the final 1:41 mark of the second round.
