In the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao vs. Jessie Vargas welterweight title fight on Sunday (Philippine time), Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire will defend his word title against the unbeaten Jessie Magdaleno.
Before he steps into the ring this weekend, let us take a look at some of the most brutal knockouts in the career of the future hall-of-famer Nonito Donaire.
Nonito Donaire vs Vic Darchinyan I
In their first fight, Darchinyan was a highly-regarded fighter and a huge favorite in his match-up against Donaire – a still unknown entity at that time. It all changed with Donaire’s powerful left hook, as the Filipino Flash won by a spectacular knockout, earning him the Knockout of the Year award from Ring Magazine.
Nonito Donaire vs Eric Montiel
Although Donaire was a favorite to win this match-up, most boxing observers still thought that it would be a competitive fight since both of them were in the Top 10 pound-for-pound list. However, Donaire won every round of their short fight, delivering another Knockout of the Year performance against the Mexican.
Nonito Donaire vs Jorge Arce
Many thought that the aging Arce would get a beat-down against the young Donaire, and that is exactly what happened. The fight was painful to watch as Donaire knocked down the Mexican multiple times in the one-sided match.
Nonito Donaire vs Zsolt Bedek
Many questioned if Donaire still had what it takes to deliver a spectacular performance despite his age and his recent losses. The answer was a resounding “yes” as the Filipino Flash used his speed, power and unusual angles to deliver his explosive punches.
Nonito Donaire vs Vic Darchinyan II
The second fight between the bitter rivals was very different from the first fight, with Darchinyan comfortably ahead on the scorecards in the ninth round of their 10-round fight. But you can never count out Donaire due to his left hook. In an amazing come-from-behind victory, Donaire brutally knocked down Darchinyan and went on to win via TKO.
