This fight had Nonito avenged his brother Glenn’s loss over Vic Darchinyan. The boxing bout video here shows how the supposed
underdog Nonito Donaire became the executioner thereby upsetting Darchinyan’s plans to punish his opponent in this clash held at
Harbour Yard Arena, Bridgeport, Connecticut, United States. The July 07, 2007 fight was for the IBF/IBO flyweight title.
It was a good decision for the Filipino Flash to dropped down to 112 pounds. His deed gave him the chance to maul previously undefeated IBF flyweight titlist Vic Darchinyan. Watch the video here where California’s Donaire exhibited superior technique and footwork from the onset of the bout and caught the aggressive lunging champ. With his counter attacks as a good foundation and a fatal left hook, he won the fight by knocking the power-punching Australian out at 1:38 of the fifth round.
The Aussie sprawled in the canvas and almost did not make it to the referee’s ten count. He barely stood up only to stumble into the ropes where his corner rescued him. That’s when ref wisely waved the contest off.Darchinyan wants to avenge his flyweight boxing world title loss to Donaire, but expects a rematch to take place at super flyweight.
