Nonito Donaire Jr. shocked the boxing world when as an underdog, he was able to take the WBA bantamweight crown from Irishman Ryan Burnett.
The Filipino Flash is already past his prime. But back when he was in the top 10 pound for pound list, he was a sight to behold.
KAMI presents to you a list of some of his most incredible knockout victories.
1. Vic Darchinyan
Nonito became an elite boxer when he defeated heralded boxer Vic Darchinyan in the fifth round with one of the most incredible knockouts of all-time. The Filipino Flash defied the odds by beating the much-favored Armenian fighter.
2. Fernando Montiel
The Pinoy prizefighter was slightly favored in this match but nobody thought that he would easily demolish his Mexican foe, as both of them were in the top 10 pound for pound list. It’s a testament to Fernando’s heart that he was able to get up from the wicked left hook but it was all in vain as he received more blows after that.
3. Jorge Arce
Nobody was surprised when Donaire KO’d Jorge Arce, but it is still fascinating to watch a veteran pass the torch to a younger, hungrier and more explosive fighter. The Mexican was knocked down multiple times before the fight was stopped.
4. Hernan Marquez
Donaire dominated every round before finally putting Marquez out of his misery in the eight with a left uppercut.
5. Vic Darchinyan rematch
Donaire’s rematch with Darchinyan was an intense one, as the latter was able to build up a sizeable lead against the Pinoy. However, the Filipino Flash was able to come from behind with a TKO, just one round before the end of the match.
